Providing REDEEMING JUSTICE for the poor, vulnerable, and victimized.

Troy and his team step into some really difficult, hard situations and pursue justice on behalf of people who really have nowhere else to go. And I cannot express my gratitude to them enough.

We help victims of domestic abuse and religious and political persecution find safety for themselves and their family. We walk beside families through the pain of losing loved ones and losing families. We help guide victims of sexual assault, human trafficking, and persecution to a path forward.

RJ Knapp

Attorney, HLAC

I went from one extreme, living in fear, to the other extreme, living in peace … I can’t describe how very, very thankful I am for the Houston Legal Aid Center.
