Healthcare and Economic Stability

People need access to health care and benefits so they can work and provide for themselves and their families. We work with our client to ensure they have access to health insurance and benefits, such as cash and food assistance, that allows them and their children to live healthy lives. We help individuals eliminate barriers to employment and increase opportunities for families living in poverty. LAWO’s advocates help people obtain what they need, such as driver’s licenses, birth certificates, and social security cards, to become and remain employed.
