LEGAL HELP

The Fenway Legal Project
The Fenway Legal Project (offered by Fenway Health’s Violence Recovery Program and AIDS Action Committee) offers legal representation for lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer and/or transgender survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault on issues including restraining orders, divorce, housing, employment discrimination, benefits, estate planning, consumer debt, and SSI denials.

Survivors can access these services by calling the Violence Recovery Program at 617-927-6500 or by calling the Legal Intake Line for AAC at 617-450-1317, or by emailing legalservices@aac.org.

Survivors do not have to access other Fenway Health, VRP, or AIDS Action services to be eligible for legal services.
