Every day, disenfranchised communities face challenges which can easily escalate to become life-altering problems.  These challenges are more easily and efficiently resolved through early intervention.

Imagine a world in which one small misstep could cost you everything: where losing your car means losing your livelihood, where failing to file the right form can cost you access to medical care, where a single arrest can result in the loss of your home, or where your life savings can be taken and there’s no one to help you fight back.

PFJ provides help for people who are at risk of losing it all. We place recent college graduates as Advocates who stand side-by-side with community members in need, help them navigate complex bureaucracies, and get them a good lawyer when they need one.

To better understand how a PFJ Advocate can help, take a look at Joe’s story…
