Homeless Youth Justice Program
Need to Talk to an Attorney? Free legal services are available for homeless youth, ages 16-24.
The Homeless Youth Justice Program allows the Clinic to provide legal services to a particularly vulnerable population—homeless teenagers and young adults. By partnering with Outreach, Inc. and other organizations that provide supportive services, the Clinic can help these clients deal with a variety of legal issues, such as family law issues, accessing education, dealing with domestic violence, accessing benefits, obtaining identification, and more.
This service is available to homeless youth, ages 16-24, in Marion and the surrounding counties.
