Everyone has basic needs - from stable housing to medical treatment to a loving family.
Sometimes, legal problems prevent vulnerable people from meeting those basic needs. When that happens, a good lawyer can make all the difference in keeping people safe, healthy, and free of poverty.
CLS helps low-income people by using our legal skills to help clients, their families, and their communities solve urgent life problems and meet their basic needs.
We focus on stable housing; financial security; physical safety; health and medical care; strong family relationships; education; and dignity and personal autonomy.
