The Project

Christy Ferioli expanded on LAFLA’s work to secure equal access to justice for low-income veterans, particularly those who are female and/or chronically homeless. Christy’s work included providing direct representation to veterans seeking disability benefits from the Department of Veteran Affairs, creating a veterans’ benefits legal clinic, and conducting outreach to veterans and their families on benefits eligibility and the VA claims process so that they better understand their rights.
