The Project

Ensure that low-income service members, veterans, and their families receive advocacy, legal representation and educational services regarding the enforcement of their legal rights and benefits, both with the Department of Veterans Affairs as well as in a variety of other civil legal areas, including Consumer, Housing, Family, and Public Benefits law.

This project addresses a wide variety of the needs of low-income service members, veterans, and their families. For example, we assist with VA benefits, Character of Service Determinations and Discharge Upgrades, Social Security denials, pending evictions, and consumer issues.
