For more than 30 years, Pisgah Legal Services has pursued justice by providing civil (non-criminal) legal assistance to low-income people. For our clients, justice is not just an abstract ideal. It is food, shelter and protection. Every day we receive dozens of phone calls from people who: - are about to be evicted from their home; - are trying to escape domestic violence; - have been denied access to health care; - need food, utilities, subsistence income and other essentials. For these people, only an attorney can solve their problem, and Pisgah Legal Services is the only resource for the civil legal help they need. We have also: Partnered with dozens of other agencies to provide comprehensive services for people in crisis; Maximized resources by leveraging the pro bono services of more than 300 area attorneys; and Earned a reputation for management excellence and good stewardship of charitable resources. In 2009, we served 10,122 low-income people, helping them stay in their homes, get access to health care, and find protection from domestic abuse.

Hello, My name is Elmira. I want to tell how thankfull i am for the help from this great organization! I've been blessed to meet Ana Corson - former staff of Pisgal Legal Services and i received so much help and compassion. This great organization helped me out from domestic violence. Ana Corson helped me to go through hard time in my life and she helped me out so much. They gave me a second chance in life. I've never met such such good people who wants to help you just because God gave them passion for this job. I will definitely keep in touch with Pisgah Legal Services and will donate as much as i can. Their job - it's a great mission and i want to be a part of it.
