Akram’s Legal Aid Story

Back

There’s a myth that people living in poverty just need to work harder to stay healthy. But how can you stay healthy if you have to choose between food and medicine? If you’re stalked by an abusive spouse? If the paint in your apartment is filled with lead?

The tireless, compassionate lawyers at Legal Aid protect our patients from those ills. That means our caregivers can focus on the physical ones. Together, we’re building a healthier community for everyone.
