Programs: In addition to representing individual clients through our uniquely structured Legal Assistance Project, the Legal Clinic assists families who are homeless through Project Link-Up, a multifaceted strategy of representation and advocacy. The Legal Clinic's Law Reform Project works in a systemic fashion, often through class action litigation, to improve programs and benefits and expand the opportunities available to our neighbors who have no homes. Through our Community Education, Support and Advocacy efforts, the Legal Clinic works in coalition with other providers of services for homeless and low?income people in the District of Columbia.

Mission:
The Legal Clinic''s mission may be summed up in two words: Service and Solutions. We dedicate ourselves to providing quality, pro bono legal services to individual clients who are homeless. We seek permanent solutions to the challenges which our clients face, by working through systemic advocacy and law reform to improve the programs, benefits, resources and opportunities available to people who are homeless; challenged by mental illness; or living in poverty. We strive to assure that clients who are homeless are treated fairly and lawfully, and that the programs which are designed to serve them are administered in compliance with applicable law and regulations. We are committed to assuring that the pool of available resources which our clients so desperately need does not shrink below its already inadequate levels. We also strive to assure that our clients have the opportunity to be visible and vocal participants in the policy, fiscal and decision-making processes that so directly impact their lives.
