The Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles (LAFLA) seeks to achieve equal justice for poor and low-income people in greater Los Angeles. We change lives through direct representation, systems change and community education. LAFLA is the first place thousands of people who struggle to survive in poverty turn for help in confronting barriers to equal justice, equal opportunity and, too often, basic human rights. Our dedicated staff of poverty law specialists provide legal assistance to individuals and families to help them resolve their legal problems, help others to become more knowledgeable about their legal rights, and collaborate with a network of public and private partners in advocacy and policy efforts to maximize the impact of our legal services by changing laws and policies that adversely affect poor people and communities. In 2010, LAFLA provided civil legal assistance to more than 14,450 people and legal information and education to 55,000 others.
