Mission Statement

We protect the basic human needs of people in poverty by connectng them with volunteer lawyers.

We stand between people in poverty and hunger, homelessness and abuse. Our laws may be fair but without a lawyer, many are abused or cheated without recourse. Help us ensure that no one is railroaded by those with more power, money or legal know-how. Everyone deserves a fair shake at equality and justice.


VLN is a volunteer-based nonprofit organization providing free civil legal services to persons in poverty, including full representation, brief services, legal advice (in-person and telephone), and outreach. We help with legal issues such as:

- preventing illegal garnishments

- ensuring safe and habitable housing

- obtaining wages due for hours worked

- protecting against physical abuse

- ensuring basic human needs are met

(We do not help with criminal, public benefits, or personal injury legal issues.)

I wanted to volunteer, but the hours are not compatible with my work schedule.
