Our Legal First Aid Training Program trains and supports social service providers working with low-income families in community-based organizations to become Legal First Aid Responders.
What is Legal First Aid?
Legal First Aid gives trainees a crash course overview on the core legal areas affecting low-income communities: immigration, housing, criminal + tickets, family, employment and benefits. Trainees walk away with a basic understanding of how these legal issues present in their clients’ daily lives, and a set of tools and resources to help them identify and address the legal problems before they rise to the level of needing an attorney. Trainees also receive a tutorial on how to use our referral tools when attorney intervention is necessary.
“The concrete legal partnership has been invaluable in educating staff and bringing resources directly and efficiently to clients.” – Case Manager
