The Project

Katrina provided direct representation for homeless veterans, veterans who are at risk of becoming homeless, and military families.

Some disabled veterans struggle to obtain their SSI/SSDI and VA benefits. Some have obtained benefits but need assistance with modifying there child support obligations because of the substantial change in their income. This project provides some relief from financial distress. The project also assists with discharge upgrades, guardianship, wills and estates, sealing and expungement, and various other civil legal services.
