Story by Story ® Eighth Annual Stair Climb

Why climb? Learn how your support changes lives

Now in its 8th year, Story by Story is an annual fundraiser and stair climb benefiting the critical work that Her Justice does every day. By climbing, you are helping to support and empower the women that we work with every day to gain access to much-needed legal services.

Her Justice trains and mentors volunteer lawyers from New York City’s law firms and companies to stand side-by-side with women in New York City.

Thanks to the power of our ‘pro bono first’ model, in 2016 our 11 Her Justice staff attorneys trained and mentored 1,490 volunteer lawyers, paralegals and law students who provided 3,198 women living in poverty in NYC with free legal help. The hours so generously donated by volunteer attorneys amounted to a value of more than $34 million.

"You and your team saved me and my children. During a time in my life when I felt the most alone and powerless, you gave me the gift of hope. For these things and more, I will forever be grateful."

For over 24 years, Her Justice has ensured that women receive critical legal assistance that helps them achieve safety, self-sufficiency and stability. We offer a complete range of legal services at no cost to our clients – information, advice, preparatory services and full court representation – in family, divorce and immigration matters that address the vital needs of New York City women and children living in poverty, especially those who have suffered domestic violence and immigrants isolated by language and culture. Such services include:

  • Orders of protection, often requiring abusive partners to leave the home
  • Fair divorce judgments, including safe visitation arrangements, health insurance and spousal support
  • Safe custody and visitation arrangements
  • Child support from parents with an ability to pay
  • Immigration status and work authorizations for victims of domestic violence and victims of other gender-based crimes
  • Information about legal remedies
  • Help understanding legal documents and support for women going to court on their own

Be a part of a critical chapter in the life of a family in crisis. Step up to register today!
