"Overcoming poverty is not a gesture of charity.
It is an act of justice."

~Nelson Mandela

The civil legal problems faced by the clients served by ABLE & LAWO are at their root, essential human needs. One core program addressing these needs is the Medical-Legal Partnership for Children (MLPC). The MLPC allows medical providers to address the underlying causes of medical conditions, such as lack of access to food, a moldy apartment, the lack of special education services, through advocacy and in house access to legal services. The MLPC trains medical providers to identify legal and social issues that may impact health and wellbeing and teaches providers advocacy strategies. The MLPC also provides a wide range of legal services to pediatric patients and their families to address individual and systemic barriers to health and wellbeing.
