Connecting with Support Centers

California Support Centers

Support Centers in California function as a vital network of programs providing technical assistance and substantive back-up to the direct services programs. Support Centers provide support service to legal services offices in the following areas: training, representation, consultation and information services. Additionally, some Support Centers also provide advocacy services.

Please note that Support Centers provide supportive services to legal services organizations, which provide direct legal services to low-income and other underrepresented clients. Unlike legal aid programs, most Support Centers do not accept or respond to direct inquiries from individuals seeking legal assistance.

We provide this listing of the Support Centers, with brief descriptions of each Center's substantive work and a link to the Center's own website, to facilitate the effective use of Support Centers by legal services programs and their staff. We strongly encourage staff at legal services programs to make use of the resources available through the Support Center system!
