Please join fellow attorneys and volunteer for a special, limited legal advocacy program which will prepare volunteers to assist clients with shelter, food, health, transportation, and social services needs.

California has the largest low-income population in the nation. Without volunteer advocates, many living in poverty would not receive benefits and services to which they are legally entitled.

By volunteering, you can help to prevent chronic homelessness and help people to move toward self-sufficiency. There is a limited time commitment - attendance at a 2.5 hour training program provided by Public Counsel attorneys and a commitment to spend 4.5 hours on one day to provide advocacy for needy clients at offices of the Los Angeles County Department of Social Services (DPSS). The training session is complimentary and provides 1 hour of CLE credit. A light dinner will be served.
