The Homelessness Service Project (HSP) will be offering legal assistance and accompaniment services at the Suitcase Clinic, the Women’s Shelter, and the Multi-Agency Service Center in Berkeley as well as encampment visits under the supervision of attorneys at the Homeless Action Center. This work will include helping clients seek out other legal assistance or take the first steps in advocating for themselves in local courts. The subject matter that HSP works on will not be limited to issues of homelessness, but instead will cover any type of legal issue that people of the homeless and low income community encounter.
Time Commitment: 12hours/month minimum commitment. This includes three days of staffing an assistance table and follow up services with clients.
Supervision: Students will provide legal services under the supervision of attorneys from the Homeless Action Center in Berkeley, California.
