The Project

The focus of this project is to advance the rights of adults with mental impairments in Harris County, TX by providing direct representation to people who have suffered housing or employment discrimination because of their mental disability; who are languishing on waiting lists; or who are denied access to health care services and supports. Through this project, education and training workshops are provided to private attorneys seeking pro bono opportunities and to adults with mental impairments and their families regarding their legal rights.
