Community Legal Services in East Palo Alto
Our mission is to provide transformative legal services that enable diverse communities in East Palo Alto and beyond to achieve a secure and thriving future. In order to have a transformative impact, our direct services are coupled with community education, technical assistance, policy advocacy, and impact litigation. We also recruit and train volunteers who donate thousands of hours to local families annually. Our ultimate goal is to empower individuals to attain a thriving future and to have a transformative impact on the broader community.
We effect positive change through the following programs:
- Our Immigration program provides legal assistance to immigrants seeking better lives, allowing families and youth to emerge from the shadows, live in safe environments, and expand their educational and career opportunities.
- Our Housing program provides legal assistance to tenants, seeking to improve living conditions, combat unlawful abuses, and prevent homelessness and the dislocation of a diverse low-income community.
- Our Consumer Protection and Anti-Predatory Lending programs provide legal help to consumers and homeowners who have been victimized by fraudulent, predatory, and unlawful business practices.
