The Project

Lisa’s project with South Carolina Legal Services will focus on offering assistance with housing issues, such as evictions, to underserved and underprivileged members of our community.

At South Carolina Legal Services, Lisa will serve low-income individuals who are at risk or currently experiencing housing instability, involuntary displacement, and eviction.

Fellowship Plans

Lisa will attend relevant legal training and conferences that will provide information to benefit the clients. Lisa will provide legal advice and representation to assist those facing housing instability, involuntary displacement, eviction, or other landlord/tenant issues. Lisa will provide outreach services to the community to educate and inform them of services offered to assist community members with evictions and other housing and landlord/tenant issues.

Lisa knows the security of having a place to call home, and is grateful to be able to help others have a place that they too can call home.

My Equal Justice Works Fellowship has given me with the opportunity to help our low-income clients obtain or maintain housing, a basic need for our clients.
