As legal first responders, Legal Services NYC is striving to help those most in need. When the COVID-19 crisis hit NYC, our team leapt into action, shifting seamlessly to remote work. Our advocates know that LSNYC is a lifeline for low-income New Yorkers who are victims of domestic violence, trapped in their homes with abusers; tenants who have struggled to obtain repairs to safety hazards in their buildings during court closures; and those who need assistance in securing unemployment insurance, food stamps, and other essential benefits. In this extraordinarily challenging moment, your partnership with LSNYC is critical. Please join us by making your gift today.
