Louisville

The Louisville Project H.E.L.P. program began providing free legal advice and representation to homeless clients in the fall of 2015. Since then, nearly 60 attorneys from across the city have signed up to volunteer with the program, and our volunteers have provided free legal assistance to over 100 homeless clients. Read Insider Louisville’s initial coverage of the program.

Project H.E.L.P. volunteer attorneys meet with homeless clients during two hour shifts at local shelters and service sites to assist them with legal problems that may contribute to homelessness and be barriers to employment, housing, safety, and economic stability. The extent of legal services provided ranges from advice and counsel to full representation depending on the circumstances of each case and each volunteer’s schedule.

Please register HERE to volunteer with Project H.E.L.P. If you have any questions or would like more information on the program, please contact Jenn Pence.
