Why Donate to CCLA?

Every year Coast to Coast Legal Aid of South Florida provides critical legal assistance to thousands of low-income residents of Broward County who could otherwise not afford it. Still, 85% of those in need of legal assistance go unserved due to a lack of funding and resources. Donations from members and caring individuals in the  community play a major role in our work assisting victims of domestic violence, human trafficking, and families and seniors in need of public assistance or facing foreclosure.

Donate securely online – your tax-deductible gift will help Broward County’s underserved communities get the free civil legal services they so desperately need!

My Attorney and Paralegal “are the best! Very patient and so professional I appreciate their help and guidance during my case! I felt like they had my back during the entire case process and I felt so protected and well taken care of.” – CCLA Client
