For over 55 years, Nassau Suffolk Law Services has been helping people in need. We provide free legal representation and advocacy to low-income and disabled residents of Long Island in non-criminal matters. With offices located across Long Island, our direct legal services alone benefit nearly 15,000 individuals a year. In these challenging times, we’re incredibly heartened by the community surrounding our cause, especially because you are a part of it. We are Long Islanders helping Long Islanders, and together we can accomplish anything and make a difference in our beautiful Long Island communities. Our team of dedicated poverty law and housing experts include attorneys, social workers, paralegals, and support staff who are devoted to this important mission. As things slowly get back to normal for some, the COVID-19 pandemic has created a serious financial hardship for so many Long Island residents. Now more than ever and the months to follow, Long Island’s most vulnerable populations will need our legal assistance. Our Civil Unit and our Foreclosure Prevention Project remain committed to helping our clients maintain their housing. Our Public Benefits and Disability Advocacy Project continue to advocate and ensure our clients have proper access to 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: Veterans, senior citizens, people with disabilities, people living with HIV/AIDS, survivors of domestic violence, and students with special educational needs.
Our Legal Support Center for Advocates is here to assist community advocates as a legal resource, so advocates may effectively assist their clients, thereby reaching more people in need. Private attorney volunteers are important partners to fill the gap in services and expand our current programs through our Suffolk Pro Bono Project and Nassau Volunteer Lawyers Project. Our work must be done together: the community, the judiciary, volunteers, staff, and advocates. We are committed to facing the months ahead together as a community. Please help us as we Pave the Way for a Better Tomorrow and rebuild Long Island communities by supporting our 2021 Commitment to Justice campaign. Thanks, as always, for your continued support of NSLS.
