The Project

Dadinirt provided free legal assistance to low income veterans.

The project addressed the large homeless veteran population in Los Angeles by helping veterans get back on their feet through legal assistance. We help veterans obtain VA benefits or other government benefits to help them get on their feet and off of the streets. We also help veterans by removing barriers to employment such as upgrading discharge records or clearing criminal records so they may obtain jobs and become self reliant.
