Frank H. Hiscock Legal Aid

Civil Legal Assistance Program

The Civil Legal Assistance Program helps low-income individuals prevent and manage crises and increase independence, safety and security for their families by providing free legal assistance in a wide range of legal matters. Services, including complete representation, advice, brief service and referral, are provided in family law, housing and unemployment matters. Specialized projects provide representation to special populations including victims of domestic violence, non-custodial parents, cancer patients, immigrants and refugees and people facing homelessness due to eviction and foreclosure. Services are provided primarily to Onondaga County residents. The cancer, immigration and foreclosure projects serve multi-county regions in central New York.
