Building on a project to “cover the map” with lawyers serving veterans experiencing homelessness, the ABA Homeless Youth Legal Network is collaborating with Equal Justice Works to fund a cohort of legal Fellows dedicated to removing legal barriers in an effort to support youth experiencing homelessness. The current mapping of existing legal services for youth has only identified about 30 providers servicing minors, in just over 20 states, which leaves more than half the county without legal services programs for youth experiencing homelessness.
Join us as we explore the importance of eliminating obstacles and increasing legal services for this population. During the webinar, we will discuss how funders can support this important work to help remove barriers for youth seeking to secure identification, school enrollment, housing, employment, and much more.
Casey Trupin, JD from Raikes Foundation will moderate a panel of representatives from the American Bar Association, Equal Justice Works, the Family and Youth Service Bureau, and Homeless Persons Representation Project.
Please RSVP below if you are able to attend. We look forward to an engaging discussion!
Please note: This webinar is only open to members of Funders Together, private funders, United Ways, and philanthropy-serving organizations. If you have questions about participating, please contact Stephanie Chan, Director of Membership and Programs, at stephanie@FundersTogether.org
