The Project

The Center for Veterans Advancement at Public Counsel works to stabilize the living situations for Veterans and their families, particularly homeless Veterans. This includes a broad range of services, including not only the larger-scale issues such as securing housing and government benefits, but also the “smaller,” but often no-less-important, work of expunging criminal records, lowering child support arrears payments, and the like.

Everyone, regardless of income, deserves to live healthy, productive lives. Lawyers have a duty to give back to help those who have not been given the advantages we have been given by our communities.
