Not all heroes wear capes!

Join our monthly giving program and become a Neighborhood Hero.

Neighborhood Heroes are special, dedicated supporters who participate in our monthly giving program. The benefits of being a Neighborhood Hero include a thank you gift with your welcome packet, exclusive event invitations​, and an annual progress report on how your gift is helping support vulnerable residents of Los Angeles County.

Help educate people on how to advocate for themselves when they cannot afford a lawyer. Help survivors of domestic violence file a court order to protect themselves and their loved ones from their abusers. Provide a free legal clinic where someone who is unemployed can receive assistance to access their disability benefits, or where a person can receive help to clear a criminal record so that they can finally have a fresh start.

Cy Pres Awards

Cy Pres awards play a significant role in funding NLSLA’s operations and help provide free legal services to vulnerable residents of Los Angeles County.  We are grateful to the attorneys and law firms who allot NLSLA as a potential recipient of residual funds in the class action lawsuits in which they are involved.

If you, your firm, or someone you know is a party to or counsel on a class action case involving Cy Pres awards, you can nominate NLSLA as an awardee. Awards can be designated to benefit general operations or a program area.

If you have any questions or are interested in designating the NLSLA as a Cy Pres award recipient, please contact Lynne Hiortdahl, CFO at .
