We're excited to announce the 13th Annual Race for Justice! We invite all runners, walkers and SALC supporters to join us in raising funds for SALC!
We have two family law office locations in the Greater Portland Metro-Area serving low-income clients in Multnomah, Washington,
Clackamas and Columbia counties.

Additionally, the CDLC is located in downtown Portland with easy access to public transportation.
About St. Andrew Legal Clinic
We are a community-based, charitable organization that purposefully acts with compassion and spiritual motivations to help people in need.
SALC helps bridge the gap for families who do not qualify for Legal Aid and can not afford to hire a private attorney. As a result of the legal representation that SALC provides, families have increased financial security, stay off of welfare and are overall more productive members of our society. And more children also grow up in positive and safe environments as a result of SALC's intervention.
About Community Development Law Center
The Community Development Law Center was created to address the high priority need in low-income communities across Oregon: low income housing. CDLC attorneys provide legal assistance to non-profit organizations seeking to create low-income housing for at-risk families. CDLC provides expertise in areas of transactional law needed for real estate development, land use, tax, financing, construction, and related community development issues.
The CDLC helps Oregon non-profits in matters of:
- Affordable housing
- Economic development
- Green and sustainable building
- Land Trust/land use
- Non-profit tax and compliance issues
For ten years, the Community Development Law Center has provided low-cost legal assistance to more than 100 non-profit community agencies throughout Oregon that provide food, shelter, and other services for special needs populations. When families are able to secure safe shelter they thrive, which helps improve the health of children, who then have a better chance of succeeding in school.
