NHLA is resourceful about ensuring vulnerable people have access to legal advice and representation to protect their most basic needs. I have seen how efficient and effective NHLA is, building support from nearly 40 different funding sources to manage a fiscally responsible budget; and frankly, given what this organization contributes to our state, it should be provided with the resources to meet the full demand for their services.
