Our Model

 

Universal Access

We’re pioneering a way to ensures everyone can use the law to protect themselves, on any issue, no matter what their income is.

Comprehensive Services

We directly represent low-income residents in over 35 areas of law and engage in joint case management with other human service professionals.

Built to Scale

We built our knowledge infrastructure to scale. We want to prove that universal access can work at a large scale and become a model for national replication.
