NLP: Supporting families, strengthening lives

The Neighborhood Law Project supports Community Legal Aid's mission by promoting economic development in historically disadvantaged neighborhoods. Project staff provide legal advocacy, expertise, and support to strengthen grassroots efforts in expanding social justice and racial equity, empowering disinvested communities, and building coalitions for positive social change.


Advocates on our Neighborhood Law Project work with partner organizations to host onsite Legal Office Hours where residents can get advice on issues that interfere with quality of life, stability, and safety or limit their ability to invest in community development. Find details for upcoming office hours at partner organizations by visiting our events page.
