The Project

Legal Services of Northern California's Tommy Clinkenbeard Legal Clinic is a clinic aimed at helping homeless people ticketed for illegal camping and other offenses related to their homelessness. The clinic provides civil legal services and facilitates the Loaves & Fishes Calendar, a court date whereby homeless guests are able to resolve their minor criminal offenses by obtaining a sentence of community service or treatment in lieu of incarceration and fines. <br/>
