The Project

The community served by Covenant House, homeless youth age 18-21, are quite vulnerable. Residents of Covenant House and youth who receive drop-in services normally have no place to go. Their vulnerability makes them prime targets for predators and abusers. Although their needs as defendants are thoroughly addressed, a focus on their rights as victims is also required since defendants in many instances start out as victims of crimes. With Beverly’s assistance as a Crime Victims Justice Corps Fellow, Covenant House will be able to provide comprehensive legal services to victims of crime.

As a Crime Victims Justice Corps Fellow, Beverly will ensure that the existing legal remedies provided to residents of Covenant House will be supplemented with direct assistance and representation for survivors and victims of human trafficking and other crimes including, but not limited to sexual assault and domestic violence.

Our clients benefit from more than just us serving them because we have a nationwide network of dedicated lawyers supporting us and pushing for change on a systemic level.
