Legal Services are at the core of our mission to protect West Virginia’s most vulnerable. By providing legal information and representation, our knowledgeable attorneys help children, families, and individuals escape abuse, overcome barriers to employment and housing, and receive the education and health care they need.

Our Behavioral Health Advocacy program assists West Virginians living with mental and behavioral health disorders by promoting community supports and preserving access to services. Our advocates strive to help individuals and families meet their challenges with dignity and hope.
