Justice in Action

We know that housing is a basic human need and affordability is vital. That's why our Save Your Home Philly Hotline has worked tirelessly to relieve financial burdens caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Health and Home

We all need to lean on others when times get tough. At the Medical-Legal Community Partnership, we know that family units can provide care and support during uncertain times, and are fighting to keep families healthy and united during COVID-19.

The transition from military to civilian life is difficult for many veterans. Philadelphia Legal Assistance is proud to serve our veterans and ensure their housing and incomes are stable during and after this adjustment period.
