1 Los Angeles Center for Law and Justice Strategic Plan LACLJ fights for the rights of families whose lives are being impacted by difficult legal and crisis situations. LACLJ s holistic legal services model offering personalized legal representation, education, and supportive services focuses on ensuring safety and success beyond the courtroom. Building on our experience with these individual families, we advocate for widespread change to improve the lives of low-income families in California.

2 Our clients face Crisis Situations Significant Barriers to Justice Complex Legal Issues We provide Personalized, Holistic Services Legal Representation by Experienced Attorneys Advocacy on Impact Issues We fight for the rights of vulnerable families and advocate for a more just legal system

3 We envision a strong community that is safe, stable and free from injustice Our Programs DOMESTIC VIOLENCE Supports survivors of domestic violence and their families in establishing safety and stability through wrap-around legal advocacy. TEEN LEGAL ADVOCACY (Teen/LA) Provides legal advocacy and education to young survivors of sexual assault and/or domestic violence and young parents in high-conflict co-parenting relationships so they can have healthy, violence-free relationships. IMMIGRATION Supports undocumented youth and survivors of interpersonal violence in obtaining stability through immigration relief. ACCESS TO JUSTICE Addresses the systemic problems low-income families face in accessing the legal system by engaging in innovative partnerships, strategic initiatives and policy

4 Doubled LACLJ s Budget Increased our staff of experienced attorneys by 55% Expanded Launched Domestic Violence Teen/LA Access to Justice Immigration Over the past five years, LACLJ has embraced opportunities to broaden our reach within low-income communities. Moving away from a service model that focused on narrowlydefined geographies and areas of law, LACLJ has implemented a program-based service model that is flexible, holistic and defined by the needs of our target populations. LACLJ programs support a wide-range of legal and non-legal services that are more responsive to communities facing the greatest barriers to accessing justice. The LACLJ strategic plan outlines priorities for that focus on developing a solid infrastructure, supporting LACLJ to provide the highest-caliber services to the most vulnerable populations. Our strategic plan supports impact and sustainability

5 Strategic Priorities Services Guarantee that LACLJ programs provide the highest quality of service and demonstrate positive impact. Build evidence that LACLJ programs achieve measurable outcomes for low-income families through agency-wide data collection and program evaluation. Enhance LACLJ s high-quality services through standardized case management protocols and assessments. Brand Promote LACLJ as a superior nonprofit agency through a cohesive brand and communications plan. Build a well-defined brand through cohesive messaging and visual identity. Promote community awareness and support for LACLJ through a comprehensive communications and publicity plan.

6 Finances Ensure that LACLJ is a stable and sustainable organization with a diverse fundraising portfolio. Create new opportunities through strategic partnerships with foundations. Administration Strengthen administrative systems to increase organizational capacity. Improve internal financial systems and protocols to support long-term financial health. Cultivate a sustainable pro bono program that focuses on enhancing organizational resources.
