Community Legal Services
Pennsylvania’s Secretary of Labor and Industry acknowledges missing the federal metric for first check issuance in the latest quarterly report card, but says the department had previously been criticized for paying claimants too much.
“If I could afford a lawyer, I would contact a lawyer,” says Beth Goodell of Community Legal Services of Philadelphia.
Community Legal Services (CLS) provides free civil law services to low income families throughout Philadelphia.
Community Legal Services of Philadelphia is holding its third annual 5K Sunday.
Act 80, passed this year, eliminated the $150-million general assistance fund, which gave monthly cash grants of about $200 to more than 61,000 low-income and disabled Pennsylvanians.
The cuts in aid to 61,000 poor Pennsylvanians go into effect July 31st.
A 5K run and walk will be held in Fairmount Park on Sunday to help provide legal services to those who can’t afford them.
