This two-phase project will help replicate the homeless court model across California to help address the needs of families and youth interacting with the court system.
Phase One: Understanding Homeless Courts
What is homeless court?
A tool to incentivize treatment, help people off the street, and save money.
Enables clients to alter their trajectory through obtaining education, identification, benefits, and more.
Builds relationships across systems and removes legal barriers to stability.
A hand-up, not a hand-out.
