Our non-profit client of the week, Pisgah Legal Services, positively impacts WNC in a myriad of ways. Founded in 1978, Pisgah Legal helps more than 16,000 of the most vulnerable people in our communities annually to meet urgent needs such as housing, safety from abuse, health care and income. Pisgah Legal partners with dozens of other agencies to make sustainable change for people in crisis and coordinates the services of more than 300 pro bono attorneys in WNC. Their work improves systems and policies that impact the lives of thousands of low-income people.
One of the many services Pisgah Legal counts on from ABE is the knowledge and experience to provide them with office equipment that helps to meet the budgetary constraints inherent to a non-profit, so that they can direct their resources more solidly towards their mission.
Pisgah Legal Services operates in eight counties: Buncombe, Henderson, Madison, Mitchell, Polk, Rutherford, Transylvania and Yancey. For information on volunteering and donating, please see https://www.pisgahlegal.org/charitable-giving/
