Our community thrives when we work together for good.

Over the last five decades, our services and our volunteers have helped tens of thousands of people get through difficult times. Without these services, local courts would be overloaded with minor cases, and many people would have suffered needlessly because there is no one else to turn to for the services they need.

The Legal Hand Call-In Center Turns Two

In the two years since CCJ Launched the Legal Hand Call-In Center Serving Schenectady and Albany Counties, we've helped 3,000 people with civil legal issues and provided information to thousands more.

The Legal Hand Call-In Center Breaks Barriers to Justice

At Legal Hand, trained community Volunteers, supervised by our dedicated staff, provide free information, assistance, and referrals to help people resolve issues affecting their lives in the areas like employment, housing, family, immigration, domestic violence, and benefits. Our mission is to prevent civil legal problems from turning into legal actions.  Unlike most providers of legal assistance, we have no eligibility requirements, and all are welcome.  We provide assistance by phone, text, email and chat, and can meet with you virtually.
