Current Initiatives

Advocates for Credit, Employment and Shelter

Understanding that sometimes combating poverty and injustice requires a coordinated effort, we have partnered with the other Legal Services Corporation of Virginia grantees to fight statewide issues surrounding equal access to credit, employment and housing.  Attorney Jesse Zajac zealously advocates throughout our service area on these issues, as well as coordinating statewide initiatives with other ACE advocates throughout the state.

Campaign to Reduce Evictions Fellowship

Given that Hampton Roads has some of the highest eviction rates in the nation, LASEV is happy to announce the CaRE Fellowship.  The CaRE attorney, Michele Peters, works to fight evictions throughout the LASEV service area, spearheading LASEV's eviction diversion programs and being present in the local courts to provide information and representation to tenants on the local public housing eviction dockets.
