What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Almost a quarter of North Carolina’s population struggles to make ends meet. Families all over the state face hardships like: inadequate housing, food insecurity, lack of access to benefits and healthcare, domestic violence, unfair employment, discriminatory treatment, instability after a natural disaster, and other obstacles. Legal Services Corporation found in 2022 that 74 percent of low-income families experienced at least one civil legal problem in the past year, including consumer issues, housing conditions, health care, domestic violence, and income maintenance. They also found that households that have dealt with issues related to eviction and/or domestic violence were disproportionately more likely to have experienced multiple civil legal problems in the previous year. To make matters worse, many Americans may incorrectly believe that they have a right to an attorney in any court case. In fact, assistance in a civil case is frequently difficult and expensive to obtain.

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

Right to Education Project (REP)

The Right to Education Project (REP) is a statewide project that focuses on serving children in the public education system. REP cases involve: short-term suspension; long-term suspension; expulsion; involuntary transfers to alternative school; denial of enrollment; discrimination on the basis of race, national origin, sex or disability; mistreatment by school security personnel; special education; bullying; and academic failure.

In addition to providing direct legal services to clients, REP provides community education in the form of publications, presentations, trainings, and media outreach, and collaborates with other organizations and individuals working for education justice.

To be eligible for services from REP, a child must live in a household with an income not more than 187 percent of the federal poverty level, or live in foster care. Legal Aid of North Carolina screens all applicants to determine if they meet financial and other requirements for service.

The Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault Project (DVSAP) is a statewide project that provides legal assistance to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking. DVSAP advocates are trained to keep victims safe and empower them to become self-sufficient so they can live independently from their abusers.

DVSAP advocates work closely with community-based programs, agencies, and task forces serving victims of domestic and sexual violence. The DVSAP has existing formal collaborative agreements and referral protocols with more than 75 local organizations.

DVSAP receives funding from the NC Governors Crime Commission, NC Council for Women and Youth Involvement, and the State of North Carolina.

The DVSAP also works closely with Immigration Pathways for Victims, which provides comprehensive and culturally appropriate legal services to immigrant survivors of violence needing assistance with immigration.

The Farmworker Unit (FWU) is a statewide project that serves migrant farmworkers. Although farmworkers do very hard work and although without their labor we would not have the abundant food we do, they often struggle just to earn enough to feed and clothe their families. North Carolina has the 5th or 6th largest population of farmworkers in the United States and the largest number of farmworkers who come to the United States on temporary visas to do farmwork.

FWU seeks to increase the level of socioeconomic integration of migrant farm workers to ensure full participation in society. We work toward this goal by protecting and enforcing the employment and civil rights of migrant workers and by protecting and enforcing the contractual and statutory obligations under H2-A worker contracts and other legal rights of H-2A workers. Our hope is to ensure that migrant workers are afforded equal opportunity to live and work safely, and in accordance with federal, state and international law.

The Economic Justice Initiatve (EJI) strives to keep working poor and working families in possession of their homes and home equity.

By providing high-quality legal representation in foreclosure actions, the EJI saves homes, preserves credit ratings and strives to make prohibitive the cost of conducting business for unscrupulous brokers and lenders. The EJI also provides community education to increase awareness of home-finance best practices and the dangers of predatory lending.

The EJI collaborates with six other legal services organizations to form the Home Defense Project (HDP). The HDP saves homes and reduces foreclosures in North Carolina by securing loan modifications for borrowers and providing high-quality foreclosure-defense work in every county in the state. The HDP is funded in part by the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation​.

The Veterans Law Project is a special, statewide unit that helps low-income veterans overcome service-related legal barriers that prevent them from living self-sufficiently and seeking economic opportunity.

We focus our advocacy on cases that can have a serious impact on a veteran's ability to find work, secure housing, and establish economic stability. Areas of practice include disability compensation, discharge upgrades, pension benefits, and Veterans Administration overpayments.

Veterans must be at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty guidelines to be eligible for help. We prioritize clients who are homeless or facing homelessness. Facing homelessness can mean couch-surfing, being behind on rent and threatened with eviction, being behind on mortgage payments and facing foreclosure, and more.

• Enforcing Medicaid beneficiaries’ rights
• Monitoring systemic issues to insure that the interests of beneficiaries are centered in the State’s transition to managed care

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

A legal advocate can be life-changing for a family. Legal Aid ameliorates the devastating effects of poverty by working strategically with other organizations to educate people about their rights, offer free legal advice, and represent clients in legal disputes. Legal intervention can change a household’s circumstances from unsafe housing that causes medical problems to custody agreements that ensure survivors of domestic violence can protect their family from future abuse. Research shows that the availability of legal services decreases the likelihood that women will be battered. According to the Legal Services Corporation, survivors rate the filing of a protective order as one of the two most effective tools for stopping domestic violence, second only to leaving the abuser. Yet fewer than one in five low-income victims of domestic violence ever gets to see a lawyer.

Legal Aid of North Carolina's goal is to create a more just and prosperous North Carolina by ensuring equal access to justice for everyone. We focus on legal needs that rob individuals of their dignity and their access to basic needs like housing, food, employment, health, safety, and an education.

The need is so great that we prioritize cases that have the biggest impact on client's lives and their communities. One study found that the average percentage of cases in which both sides were represented by counsel was only 24 percent. This terrible imbalance in the justice system can spark a chain reaction of negative consequences for people already struggling to make ends meet.

We use a combination of staff attorneys, volunteers, and partners to serve as many people as we can. We have eighteen regional offices throughout the state, a free centralized helpline, and special projects that ensure that no group or community is left behind. Special Projects help marginalized groups like children, domestic violence victims, battered immigrants, veterans, seniors, victims of housing discrimination, migrant farmworkers, Native Americans, and other groups. Each year we revisit our priorities to ensure that we are addressing the most dire civil legal needs in North Carolina.

Our strategies include providing civil legal help through generalist legal staff, issue-focused expert legal staff, and volunteers. Clients receive three types of services: informational services such as self-help clinics and educational materials, brief service and advice like a conversation with an attorney, and extended service such as representation in court.

In order to make the biggest impact for individual clients and their communities, we take a holistic approach when evaluating clients and potential cases. Legal Aid is committed to improving our clients’ circumstances and helping them to break free from cycles of poverty. Our work improves the quality of life in communities facing hardship and can be instrumental in increasing health and stability. For example, Legal Aid positively impacts clients’ social determinants of health including: increasing the availability of resources to meet daily basic needs, ensuring healthy physical environments, creating equal access to the opportunity to learn and work, and reducing exposure to violence.

We do this by leading the North Carolina Navigator Consortium which helps consumers enroll in healthcare coverage on Healthcare.gov. Thanks in part to the efforts of the NC Navigator Consortium, the only statewide Healthcare.gov navigator group in North Carolina, our state has had the fourth-highest number of enrollments out of the roughly 40 federally facilitated Marketplace states.

Our healthcare work also includes a Medical-Legal Partnership that connects legal and medical professionals to tackle the legal factors that prevent patients from becoming healthy. The partnership includes 10 healthcare providers, including statewide health systems and local health centers. In conjunction with Medicaid expansion and privatization in North Carolina, we have begun outlining future partnerships with insurance companies to provide legal services for Medicaid patients. We know that by strategically tackling a lack of access to affordable healthcare proactively, we can prevent future legal problems that result from poor health and catastrophic poverty.

Our commitment to our clients’ well-being includes providing access to social workers at key offices. Social workers provide additional resources for clients and continue to strengthen Legal Aid’s relationships with local organizations. A recent goal is to expand our clients’ access to social workers across our practice. Since low-income individuals face many obstacles, at Legal Aid we want to ensure that we're doing our best to set our clients up for future success and stability.

Legal Aid of North Carolina’s has a strong capability to improve the lives of the disenfranchised and those struggling to make ends meet in North Carolina. We touch the lives of more than 110,000 people and handle more than 20,000 legal cases a year. We are deeply embedded in the North Carolina nonprofit community. Not only do we obtain funding for all our programming, we also assist partnering organizations with obtaining and administering grants.

The biggest obstacle preventing equal access to justice for every North Carolinian is a lack of resources. Until the lack of resources can be addressed, Legal Aid employs multiple ways of ensuring that every penny is stretched and that cases are prioritized to help those with the greatest need. Every year we bring on new partners and new funders to increase the impact we can have on our state. Partnerships are built and maintained with city governments, universities, insurance companies, corporations, legal associations, government agencies, local nonprofits, and others.

Internally, we have bolstered our capability by centralizing certain functions. Our centralized free legal helpline is considered one of the best in the country and has been a model for other legal aid organizations. Our helpline quickly and compassionately fields calls and assigns cases to our different programs. Our unique structure that combines regional offices and special projects ensures that no part of the state and no group is left behind in the pursuit of justice.

Over our organization’s past decade (2013-22) we touched the lives of more than 1,157,000 people and provided at least $184.9 million dollars in benefits to our clients. We’ve built ground-breaking partnerships like city-wide eviction diversion projects and a statewide Medical Legal Partnership. We’ve taken on a leadership role in our state as the leader of the NC Navigator consortium that provides access to affordable healthcare. We’ve won cases that have had resulted in more just and equitable housing and educational policies. These shifts in policies have affected millions of children and tenants in North Carolina. We’re a highly regarded Legal Aid and our innovative helpline serves as a model for other civil legal aid organizations.

Our future plans include continuing to grow to serve the increasing civil legal needs of low-income North Carolinians. We plan to grow strategically by expanding partnerships, utilizing technology, centralizing and specializing when necessary, and remaining flexible enough to address new problems. For example, when the coronavirus pandemic struck, low-income residents' ability to continue paying for housing led to an eviction crisis. We obtained emergency funding and used it to hire more attorneys and paralegals, and we created a new Housing Helpline to enhance our intake capacity to better serve our clients and the community. We remain a nimble organization, despite our size, in order to respond to changes in our communities.

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
