The Project

This project provides support and defense to tenants living in project-based section 8 and public housing who are facing eviction or living in substandard conditions.

The Inspiration

Need Addressed By Project

This project is addressing the needs of those in poverty or low-income households and providing legal advice and representation.

The Right Person For This Project

Shannon is the right person for the project because of his passion. He has the strong opinion that poverty or financial situation should not be a detriment to having adequate legal advice and representation. He also believe that a project wishing to accomplish such goals as helping those who are not in best financial position should be composed of those who feel passionate about the cause. His passion and Georgia Legal Services Program goals are congruent. His host organization allows him to dedicate the time and energy necessary make an actual impact on the community.

Plans For First Six Months of Fellowship

In the first six months, Shannon will lay a foundation for his project and conduct community outreach to improve the lives of the communities he serves.
