Legal Hand is a legal resource center located here in Brownsville at 519 Rockaway Ave. Legal Hand seeks to assist residents with various legal issues they may be facing, ranging from public assistance to immigration. One major legal concern that Legal Hand volunteers encounter everyday are housing issues, specifically residing in NYCHA housing. On March 16th, Legal Hand Brownsville held NYCHA Day. NYCHA day, in collaboration with The Legal Aid Society, allowed residents to meet face to face with NYCHA representatives and Legal Aid advocates to get answers and assistance with any problems they may be currently facing. Legal Hand Volunteers continued to conduct outreach informing residents about he event and bringing them in to receive the information they needed. When residents left, they expressed their gratitude for bringing resources and events like NYCHA Day into the community. A big thank you to The Legal Aid Society for being present and ready to assist residents with their questions or concerns. Also, a big thank you to NYCHA representatives from Tilden, Seth Low, and Unity Plaza for also being in attendance at this event. Please stay tuned for upcoming Legal Hand events coming soon!!
