Health, Safety & Stability

Coast to Coast Legal Aid of South Florida (CCLA) provides access to justice and free civil legal assistance to eligible residents of Broward County. We protect and defend the legal rights of families, seniors, and underserved populations such as people who are unhoused, victims of domestic violence, and persons living with HIV/AIDS. We work to achieve lasting social and economic freedoms for our community by focusing on the basic needs of health, safety, and stability.

In addition to our legal services, CCLA conducts outreach to educate and inform residents and community providers about legal issues and legal rights. For more information about outreach, or to request a presentation at your organization, please click here.
