Telephone intake

For housing issues, call the Save Your Home Philly Hotline.

For custody or protection from abuse, call the Family Law Intake Line.

If your legal problem is SSI, you need to apply to Community Legal Services (CLS) for assistance.  Your case may be referred from CLS to PLA.  For the intake hours at CLS, see the SSI page of CLS's web site.

For all other issues, call 215.981.3800 on Tuesday or Thursday between 9:30 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.

If you would prefer to apply in person rather than over the phone, see our walk-in intake hours (not available for custody or protection from abuse).

If you would like a paper copy of our telephone intake hours, see our intake flier.
