Our mission is to work to create housing and economic opportunity in under-served communities in Pennsylvania and to effect systematic change for the benefit of  lower-income households statewide.

RHLS achieves its mission by:

  • Providing free legal services and technical assistance to community-based organizations that develop affordable housing and engage in economic development activities that benefit low-income people;
  • Informing, training and supporting consumers and those who serve consumers, on housing and utility issues; and
  • Engaging in policy analysis and promoting system innovations focused on critical housing, economic development, neighborhood revitalization and utility issues.
