Our Project Areas

Each of our projects touches a vital resource that all of us need to live productive, fulfilling lives: an education, a safe and healthy neighborhood, healthcare, a home, a job, and the right to vote.

In each project area, we use high-impact legal strategies to eliminate the barriers that prevent the Philadelphia region’s most vulnerable populations from accessing these essential resources. Each need is a necessary condition of equality, but none exists in isolation, instead building on one another to touch many aspects of a person’s life.

There is no single solution to poverty or discrimination, but by driving comprehensive and systemic change, the Law Center’s efforts continue to improve the lives of Philadelphia’s most disadvantaged citizens.
