Our Mission and Work

Support NCLS's Mission

Consider becoming a monthly sustaining donor for New Covenant Legal Services to help our mission reach more cases in St. Louis County and City. Even a one time gift can go a long way in helping reduce attorney fees for our clients.

New Covenant Legal Services (NCLS) provides legal services to individuals on fixed and limited incomes who cannot afford private legal counsel.  Our mission is to demonstrate that Jesus Christ’s love and justice are sovereign in the world.  This mission is accomplished through a holistic approach to solving legal problems and achieving justice in partnership with churches and individuals in the metropolitan St. Louis area.

The U.S. is one of  the most underserved countries in the world for access to legal services.  For instance:

  • The U.S. ranks 97th in the world for providing affordable access to justice;.
  • 1 in 3 people cannot afford an attorney.

In St. Louis alone, we estimate that approximately 350 people per week go to Court on civil cases without legal counsel.
