Our Impact

Like far too many youth aging out of foster care, Ryan was homeless. He was working hard to find a job when he learned he had a bench warrant for a retail theft citation issued to him when he was just 12 years old. He never received the notice for court because his family was homeless at the time. This bench warrant was standing in the way of Ryan getting a job and an education. That's when CLS stepped in.

Community Legal Services regularly assists clients who face housing instability due to discrimination based on past incidents of domestic or sexual violence, and advocates on their behalf to extend their housing rights and offer them protection.

CLS's work with immigrants, including those who are undocumented, prevents exploitation, lifts people out of poverty, and allows our clients to have a fair chance at accessing justice. CLS regularly represents immigrant clients and we advocate on behalf immigrant and refugee communities in a number of ways.
