The Project

This project focuses on families who need public assistance to meet their basic needs but who cannot access assistance because of chronic barriers. Social service and health care providers working with families may lack the expertise to help clients access and retain public assistance, or to recognize when legal representation is needed. The Project’s collaboration between GBLS and MGH better educates providers about benefits rights and issues, giving their clients direct access to legal assistance.
