With no prior experience or very much knowledge within the homelessness law area, as an intern for the NLCHP I was able to experience firsthand the dedication that highly qualified professionals and volunteers put in to helping the homeless. As I worked on each part of the website and got to know each member of the law center a little better, I was taken back by the qualifications of each member and humbled by what they chose to do with their current careers. As a non-profit, the NLCHP stays organized an upbeat in order to get their word out.

I served as a summer intern at the Law Center. The Law Center serves as the legal arm of the movement to eliminate homelessness in the United States. The members of the staff are dedicated and professional, and the Law Center produces an impressive number of high-quality, well-researched reports for an organization of its size. I was thoroughly impressed with my experience and I now understand why the Law Center has seen such success in both promoting good public policies and in litigation.

My experience as an intern was a valuable one -- all staff members, including those I did not directly work for, were helpful in providing insight, tasks, and generally making all interns feel like part of the overall team. The office is very cohesive and purposeful; the Law Center's focus makes every day at the job meaningful.

The Great!

I found the National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty while seeking a full-time volunteer position to fill the time I had before starting with a law firm. I was particularly interested in its children & youth program, as I am passionate about education access. I was cognizant, when selecting an organization, of avoiding an organization that blindly pursued a cause without regard to reality. NLCHP impressed me during my volunteer period by the thoughtful, intellectual, and practical approach it took to fighting homelessness and poverty. During my time there I was impressed by the staff's strong commitment to the cause they serve. NLCHP employs a talented group of attorneys, development and communications persons, and support staff. Each member has above-average skills that lead to NLCHP's highly effective advocacy. The quality of its works is evidenced by the numerous government officials and news outlets that seek comments and information from NLCHP, as well as the large number of law firms that enjoy working on pro bono projects with it. For instance, NLCHP was extensively involved in bringing about protection for renter's in foreclosed properties passed in the spring of 2009. NLCHP is making a lasting impact on homelessness and poverty by fighting the causes, not just the symptoms. By going to the "root" of the problem, NLCHP effectuates long term change. The director, and board of directors, have done an excellent job creating a professional public interest, non-profit organization. Policy goals and strategic planning are thoughtfully developed. Success and adherence to the organization's goals are tracked monthly with organizational outcome reports. The result is an organization that is affecting real change for families across the nation.

I worked with NLCHP for over two years. I was consistently impressed with the huge impact they were able to make on very limited resources - there are many groups who provide direct services, but so few who work to change the underlying conditions that have caused the housing and homelessness crisis in America.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Everything from new federal legislation to individual stories of families who found housing because of NLCHP's work.

As a volunteer, I am impressed by the knowledge and dedication of the staff. NLCHP uses legisltation,education & litigation to ensure the rights of homeless children to education, prevent eviction and denial of housing to domestic violence victims, protect the civil rights of homeless people, advocate for the right to housing and the aviability of social services for homeless people. The staff is constantly evaluating the impact of it's services, and setting future goals.
