For forty years Pisgah Legal Services (PLS), a non-profit law firm, has helped low-income people in Western North Carolina meet needs such as protection from domestic violence, avoiding homelessness, finding safe housing, accessing health care, and increasing income. PLS has 22 attorneys on staff and relies heavily on the pro bono legal services of approximately 300 volunteer attorneys and the help of more than 100 volunteers. The non-profit’s main service area includes six counties and has an office in Brevard.
Lake Toxaway Charities awarded a grant in 2020 to aid in this important initiative. The grant will fund continued free legal advice and representation to low income Transylvania Country residents.
