Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Urban Justice Center

The Urban Justice Center represents an extraordinary array of the most deprived and abused people in our society, including members of the working poor, and issues related to discrimination and oppression. We implement creative and intelligent strategies that enable us to provide desperately needed legal services and advocacy to unrepresented and under-represented groups and individuals in York City.

Our wide-ranging client base is served by the following Projects: Community Development, Domestic Violence, Homelessness Outreach and Prevention, Human Rights, Mental Health, Peter Cicchino Youth, Sex Workers, and Street Vendor. These Projects focus on different, but often interrelated aspects of injustice. Each of our Projects has a Project Director who works with the Executive Director and is directly responsible for the work of their Project and for the performance of their team of attorneys, advocates, and researchers.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people
Homeless people

Policies and processes
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
