– Making A Difference Every Day –

Since 1949, Legal Aid of Palm Beach County has helped our community’s most vulnerable and fragile citizens get access to their basic rights for shelter, food, health care, safety, education and much more. Our lawyers and staff provide a voice to those who aren’t heard and give them a fighting chance to gain many of life’s most basic needs.

None of this would be possible without the backing of attorneys, businesses, funders and donors like you, who have given us the privilege of changing countless lives.

Thank you for your continued support.
