Legal Defense Project
435 Individuals Served
We are located in the Capital Region of NY and parts of the Mohawk Valley. We work to remove systemic barriers by increasing access to an array of services that are person-centered, community-rooted, bilingual, and culturally responsive. We primarily serve LGBTQ+, youth, immigrant, refugee and Latino communities.
We help individuals identify and implement steps that prevent repeated emergencies and develop plans for self-sufficiency. We connect Monroe County residents to case management services, temporary basic needs, advocacy and more on a case-by-case basis, regardless of age, race or income.
