WAYS TO GIVE

This year marks 55 years of “doing what’s legally possible to create a just world.” Since our inception, we knew that, together, we can accomplish anything and make a difference in the lives of our Long Island Community. We intend on continuing our mission, but we need your support.

 

With the eviction moratorium ending soon, the threat of homelessness is on the minds of many living in our community. Our Civil Unit and our Foreclosure Prevention Project remain committed to helping our clients maintain their housing. Our Public Benefits and Disability Advocacy Project will continue to advocate and ensure our clients have proper access to financial and service-related programs such as food stamps, Medicaid, public assistance, and Social Security benefits.

 

Through our specialized units, we are here to assist Long Island’s most vulnerable populations including:

 

· Veterans

· Senior Citizens

· Disabled Individuals

· Those with Mental Illness

· People living with HIV/AIDS

· Survivors of Domestic Violence

· Students with Special Educational Needs

 

Our Legal Support Center for Advocates is here to assist community advocates as a legal resource to help advocates effectively assist their clients, thereby reaching more people in need.

 

Will you support our mission of “doing what’s legally possible to create a just world” this Giving Tuesday? Now more than ever and the months to follow Long Island’s most vulnerable populations will need our legal assistance. We are looking to raise $30,000 from now until the end of 2021 to help support our Legal Response Team. 

 

Please stay up to date by following us on social media as we continue to assist the community with COVID-19 and other legal related issues. Thanks, as always, for your continued support of NSLS. We wish you and your loved ones a safe and healthy holiday season.

Nassau Suffolk Law Services is a 501(c)(3) and your donation is 100% tax-deductible.

Join us in our mission to provide free, quality civil legal representation to Long Island’s neediest residents.
