For five decades, Neighborhood Legal Services of Los Angeles County has provided effective, innovative legal services in Los Angeles’ most vulnerable neighborhoods.

NLSLA_50AnniversaryAs the program has grown over the years, NLSLA developed new, innovative ways to meet the myriad needs of individuals, families, and communities throughout Los Angeles: we’ve put our attorneys in community health clinics to address the social determinants of health; created self-help centers inside superior courthouses across Los Angeles County to widen access to justice; and responded to the foreclosure crisis by devising a principal reduction strategy, in partnership with the City of Los Angeles, to keep families in their homes in the area’s hardest- hit neighborhoods.

These are but a few examples of how our advocates have worked to create specialized programs that mitigate the effects of poverty and provide access to justice for those who need it most.

We invite you to join us as we celebrate this milestone by becoming a volunteer or making a financial contribution to help us change lives and transform communities for many years to come.
