Everyone deserves access to justice. The Justice Center’s mission is to increase and promote access to justice in the Pikes Peak region. We host free legal clinics, connect income-eligible applicants to free or reduced-cost lawyers, and provide educational legal resources and events in the community.
Access to justice is not just a privilege – it’s a basic human right. Lacking the tools or assistance to solve legal problems can lead to issues of safety and stability for families, evictions and uncertainty in housing, a strain on mental and physical health… Vulnerable populations such as victims of domestic violence, seniors, veterans, immigrants and refugees often have additional barriers beyond financial ones.
The Justice Center needs volunteers from the legal community to continue to meet client needs through free legal advice and through representation.
Colorado ranks 45th in the nation (bottom 10%) for its number of attorneys available for free legal assistance to low-income people in civil cases.
“I was in an abusive relationship with no options for getting out. Through The Justice Center, I received great legal representation that saw my case through to the end. I now see a hope and future for myself that I couldn't see clearly before!” — Anonymous client who received a pro bono lawyer in 2020
