Last year we helped more than 17,000 people, including 4,000 victims of domestic violence and 1,600 veterans. Our advocates secured more than $1.7 million in back wages for workers, helped more than 100 students secure a good education, and kept 750 families in their homes. This holiday season, please consider giving the gift of access to justice.
