Mission Statement

Western Center fights for justice and system-wide change to secure housing, healthcare and a strong safety net for low-income Californians.

Description

Western Center on Law & Poverty, California’s oldest and largest legal services support center, was created in 1967 by a passionate group of attorneys and legal scholars from USC, UCLA and Loyola law schools. Our founders sought to create a unique organization, driven by the belief that low-income Californians deserve the finest possible legal representation before every institution that shapes their lives.
With a focus on healthcare, affordable housing, public benefits and access to justice issues, our attorneys, advocates, legal services co-counsel and pro bono partners attain real-world, system-wide solutions on behalf of 8.1 million low-income Californians through class action and other impact litigation; legislative and policy advocacy; negotiations and collaborations with state and local government; and support for frontline legal aid programs.
