Community Engagement at Neighborhood Legal Services is two fold—building awareness to increase referrals to NLS programs, and providing community education around legal literacy topics. Through relationships with community members and community partnerships, NLS will be responsive to the needs expressed by the stakeholders, and will respond in ways to meet the civil legal needs of the poor and vulnerable in our community.
