Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Low-income families struggling to meet basic needs are woefully unaware of support services and legal protections available under current policies. The Center leads major class action litigation and other impact advocacy efforts on behalf of individuals and families in need. It also leads self-advocacy training workshops and distributes public education materials so low-income parents can advocate for themselves and obtain the services necessary to care for their families.

Through all of this work, the Center has helped to expand access to services for low-income families, mitigate the hardships of poverty, increase people's ability to acquire and retain stable employment, and enable families in crisis to foster a healthy environment for their children.
