Mission Statement

Legal Services of Southern Piedmont’s mission is to ensure a full measure of justice for those in need. LSSP provides a wide range of civil legal assistance to eligible low-income persons in the Charlotte metropolitan area and west-central NC. LSSP accomplishes its mission through a variety of legal advocacy strategies including individual advice and representation, community education and outreach, representation of groups, self-help remedies, collaboration with other agencies, community economic development, legislative and administrative advocacy, and impact litigation.

Description

Created in 1967, Legal Services of Southern Piedmont’s mission is to "ensure a full measure of justice for those in need. To achieve this, we operate under these principles:

  • All people must have the opportunity to participate fully in the legal system and to have legal representation when necessary.

  • The legal system must be open to all without barriers or discrimination.

  • The legal system can and must protect basic human rights and ensure human needs such as safety, shelter and access to health care.

Each year, LSSP serves 3,500 families facing a crisis of safety, shelter, health or income. These families are in need of legal assistance but unable to afford private lawyers. The legal assistance we provide helps clients out of crisis by keeping people safe, in their homes, with their families intact, with medical care and out of poverty.
