[ Bridging the Gap ]

For more than 50 years, Charlotte Center for Legal Advocacy and Legal Aid of North Carolina have been working together to bridge the gap between access and justice in our community.

Too many people in the Charlotte region are stuck in the Justice Gap, which prevents them from accessing safety, economic security and family stability as well as pursuing opportunity in their lives.

Those in the gap are experiencing at least one civil legal problem that has significantly altered their lives, but they can’t afford the legal assistance necessary to remedy their problems.

When there is nowhere else to turn, Charlotte Center for Legal Advocacy and Legal Aid of North Carolina-Charlotte are there to advocate on behalf low-income people. They fight to ensure access and fairness under the law with a vision of building a more just community for everyone, not just those who can afford it.
