Do you need healthcare coverage or public benefits?

A civil legal problem impacts a person’s ability to live their life or pursue their full potential by limiting their access to basic needs of safety, economic security and family stability. Charlotte Center for Legal Advocacy helps people in the Charlotte region who cannot afford legal services but desperately need them. The need is everywhere, that’s why we are here.
