Legal Advocacy Program
The Legal Advocacy Program staff assists agency clients by assessing individual needs, providing education on legal rights options, and providing support and accompaniment in the client's pursuit of those options.
In collaboration with the Texas Rural Legal Aid (TRLA), legal advocates assist agency clients in obtaining divorces, filing police reports, assist in obtaining protective orders, and provide court accompaniment.
Advocates also work closely with Proyecto Libertad to assist immigrant battered women who are victims of crime.
Legal Advocates also provide advocacy to address conflicts between clients and landlords to prevent homelessness.
