Every day, in every borough, nonprofits improve the lives of New Yorkers. To maximize nonprofits' impact, Lawyers Alliance established five program priorities. Each is an area in which nonprofits have a critical role and our staff and volunteers have special expertise. These priorities are community arts, economic opportunity, housing and shelter, quality education, and urban health. In addition, we have developed four special initiatives to address emerging legal needs of the nonprofit sector: nonprofit accountability, advocacy, disaster relief, and navigating economic change.

Lawyers Alliance helps nonprofits to serve the poor and build communities in all five boroughs of New York City. Some of our clients focus on particular neighborhoods, others serve multiple boroughs, and others have a significant presence statewide, nationally and even internationally. The map below shows the number of organizations represented by Lawyers Alliance in each borough during the past two years.
