MFY envisions a society in which no one is denied justice because he or she cannot afford an attorney. To make this vision a reality, MFY provides free legal assistance to residents of New York City on a wide range of civil legal issues, prioritizing services to vulnerable and under-served populations, while simultaneously working to end the root causes of inequities through impact litigation, law reform and policy advocacy. MFY was founded on the principle of equal access to justice through community-based legal representation of poor New Yorkers. Working in concert with neighborhood social service providers and community advocates, we reach out to those most in need to help resolve the problems faced by large numbers of low-income New Yorkers: housing, public benefits, consumer, employment, civil rights, disability rights, and family matters. We provide advice and representation to thousands of New Yorkers each year and initiate affirmative litigation that impacts many thousands of people. Our projects include: Adult Home Advocacy Project, Consumer Rights Project, Foreclosure Prevention Project, Kinship Caregiver Law Project, Lower Manhattan Justice Project, Manhattan Seniors Project, Mental Health Law Project, Neighborhood Preservation Project, Nursing Home Residents Project, SRO Law Project, Three-Quarter House Project, and Workplace Justice Project.
