Overview:

Advocates on our Neighborhood Law Project (NLP) will be onsite at South Street Ministries, located at 798 Grant St. in Akron. Advocates will share information about legal services including, but not limited to:

  • Addressing court debt and/or barriers to employment
  • Forming tenant unions to improve living conditions
