Advocating for Those in Need



RCCJ employs a variety of approaches to fight poverty and advocate for the needs and rights of low-income families. 




Through legal action, legislative and policy advocacy, educational initiatives, and collaborative strategies, CCJ achieves systemic changes that improve the lives of thousands of individuals.


With expertise in law and public policy, CCJ monitors and improves Michigan's safety net programs so they remain accessible to the people they were designed to support.


CCJ provides free help to low-income individuals and families with questions or problems regarding governmental health care programs, including Medicaid, or other public benefits through its Health Eligibility Law Project (HELP) Line.  Please go to the HELP Line tab for more information.  Se habla Español

Except for the HELP Line, CCJ handles class action lawsuits and co-counsels on lawsuits with legal service providers on impact cases, and cannot provide assistance for individual legal matters.  If you require information regarding your legal issue, please try the resources available at Michigan Legal Help.


Thank you for helping to provide the legal and advocacy services that would otherwise be inaccessible to our most vulnerable neighbors.
