The Project

Struggling new mothers may face challenges with housing, domestic violence, disability, immigration status, education and access to government benefits, which affect health and well-being and place harmful stress on fragile families. The project will provide comprehensive legal advocacy for low-income pregnant women and new mothers in collaboration with medical and community providers throughout the city. It will continue to expand on Legal Health’s work providing high-quality legal services to vulnerable patients in a medical or health care setting.
