I’ve had the privilege of working both as a volunteer and staff attorney at Pisgah Legal Services, which gives me a special appreciation for its work.
In addition to providing free legal services, Pisgah Legal is also a strong advocate for improving conditions, protections and policies that affect under-represented populations in our mountain communities.
Pisgah Legal Services has been instrumental in helping create some of our most venerable local agencies, such as MANNA Food Bank, the Buncombe County Family Justice Center and the Rutherford Housing Partnership.
When a need is identified, Pisgah Legal leads the way in helping find solutions—for the individual, for the community, and for the system.
