Why Donate?

By giving to East River Legal Services, you give hope to our communities most vulnerable citizens.   For these people, justice is not an abstract concept, but reality. It is food, shelter, and protection. It is the difference between staying in poverty and getting out; living in danger or in safety; between dependence and self-reliance. East River Legal Services is dedicated to the belief that no one should be denied access to justice because of poverty.  Your support helps fight against systemic issues that contribute to the cycle of poverty in our community.

Your donation goes directly toward helping our clients and your neighbors. Your gift helps families avoid foreclosure. It helps children with health and education needs. It helps keep adult and children victims safe from abusive environments. It helps veterans and seniors receive the benefits they need and have earned. Your gift makes a difference right here in our community and in our neighborhoods.
