The Project

LAFLA seeks to achieve equal justice for poor and low-income people in greater Los Angeles. We change lives through direct representation, systems change, and community education. My project is expanding the work of the VA Supportive Services for Veterans Families Program by providing direct representation of low-income veterans and their families, while prioritizing extremely vulnerable veterans, particularly chronically homeless Vietnam Era veterans and female veterans. Representation focuses on issues impacting veterans’ housing and income stability, including landlord-tenant and family law matters, public benefits, drivers’ license reinstatement, citation defense, and consumer concerns.

The incongruence of hearing veterans camped outside a homeless shelter talking about their time in service highlighted to me the need for more veterans’ advocates.
