The Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles is the frontline law firm for the indigent and working poor, homeless, unemployed, elderly, disabled, veterans, and domestic abuse survivors in Los Angeles County.  It provides comprehensive civil legal services to more than 79,000 Los Angeles County residents each year.  A grant from the W. M. Keck Foundation toward the “Building Justice” Campaign, launched in 2012, will support construction of a new facility that will consolidate two existing service sites into a modern, efficient and client-friendly headquarters and service center in the Pico-Union neighborhood west of downtown.  The four story, 45,000-square-foot building will feature private client intake rooms with secure child play areas, a conference room and large patio space for community meetings and professional trainings, and a self-help resource center.  Construction will be completed by the end of 2016.  Services are expected to increase by 20% in the new facility.
