North Penn Legal Services
The mission of North Penn Legal Services (NPLS) is to provide civil legal representation
to low-income people and ensure equal access to justice for all.
- ensuring that a family moving from welfare to work gets all available benefits and programs;
- preventing an eviction through early legal intervention;
- securing a protection from abuse order;
- gaining access to needed health care at a critical time
This is what the staff at North Penn Legal Services strives to achieve each and every day for low-income families.
NPLS provides free legal aid services on civil cases to low-income families, individuals, and groups in Northeastern
Pennsylvania every day. Services include individual representation (ranging from document preparation to litigation),
information, referral and advice through a telephone helpline, community legal education, and support for those clients
who will be taking responsibility for handling some or all aspects of their own issue.
NPLS engages the private bar, social services and community organizations, courts, and advocacy groups to effectively
help low-income people with their civil legal needs.
Outcomes for clients who receive services from NPLS include self-sufficiency, living violence-free, and
obtaining viable housing and public benefits.
