Mission Statement

Virginia Poverty Las Center breaks down systemic barriers keeping low-income Virginians in the cycle of poverty through advocacy, education, and litigation.

Description

Since 1978, we’ve advocated on behalf of low-income Virginians, assisting state legal aid programs with legislative proposals that impact the poor as well as providing technical assistance, training, and resources in the following areas of law: consumer rights and protection, domestic and sexual violence, elder rights and resources, families, health, housing, and public benefits. Since our founding, we have been a clearinghouse of information on these issues.

Our staff provides leadership on advocacy efforts in the courts and within legislative and administrative agencies and often collaborates with other groups across the Commonwealth to achieve our common goals. We are the only statewide organization providing training to local legal aid program staff, private attorneys, and low-income clients, relating exclusively to the legal rights of Virginia’s poor.
