Support Marginalized Communities

Commission on Homelessness & Poverty

The Commission is a critical resource for attorneys seeking to protect the legal rights of nearly 570,000 individuals who frequently lack stable and secure housing. The economic downturn spurred by COVID-19 exacerbates this situation by forcing marginally employed renters from their homes and into dangerous living situations – over-crowded shelters or the streets. Many face unique legal challenges as they seek refuge.
