You will be warmly welcomed by the team with a smile, beverages, snacks, and opportunities to keep any children with you occupied.

Gathering Info

Our Intake Specialist will guide you through the information we need to help the Attorney provide good guidance and direction to you. They will assist you with the $30 copay which is all you will pay for legal help related to the questions that bring you in today.

Professional Help

Our Attorney will listen to your story with compassion. They will review appropriate information, assess your circumstances, and provide clarity on your next steps. They will help you create a next step plan to guide you forward.

Additional Support

Our Client Advocate is on your side. They will review your plan, explore any questions or barriers, and ask if they can pray for you. We want to ensure you have the social and spiritual support needed to move forward with confidence. You will receive a folder from us to store information, resources, and support.


We will follow up with you at regular intervals to see how you are doing. We come alongside you to remove any barriers with your plan, continue to pray, and support you.
