Legal Aid NC works for justice for the basic needs we all require: safety, fair treatment, employment, housing, and more.

More than two million North Carolinians qualify for our support. Yet, we are only able to reach a fraction of calls for help because of limited funding and capacity.

Your support helps open opportunities for our clients to build their lives beyond current hardships. Your donation helps more families and individuals access justice through Legal Aid NC.
