Ways to Support
The Law Center catalyzes the efforts of homelessness advocates and allies at the national, state, and local levels. Our vision is that a home for every family and individual will be a right and not a privilege; a reality, not just a goal. Our work would not be possible without our large network of supporters, pro bono lawyers, advocates, non-profits, and those directly impacted by homelessness.
Support the Law Center with an immediate, fee-free credit card donation. Give once, or set up a monthly, quarterly, or annual recurring donation.

- Volunteer Attorney (Pro Bono projects): The Law Center is seeking a part-time (15-25 hours/week) volunteer attorney to help develop, maintain, and oversee our large program of pro bono legal projects. It will be a great opportunity to oversee innovative legal work involving homelessness, housing, poverty, and education projects, work directly with attorney volunteers at major law firms and corporate legal departments.
