Looking for Attorney Volunteers for Homeless Resource Day!

Posted by Chi Song on March 10, 2015

The 8th Annual Anne Arundel County Homeless Resource Day will be held on March 28, 2015 at Annapolis High School from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Volunteer attorneys are among the many service providers available on this day to assist individuals and families experiencing homelessness. During this “one-day, one-stop” program, volunteer attorneys provide limited legal advice on a wide range of topics, including expungement (the most asked about issue), family law, benefits, debt, housing and foreclosure. Homeless Resource Day provides individuals and families experiencing homelessness with invaluable services and benefits that can assist them on the path to housing and self-sufficiency.

Volunteers are needed throughout the day, which is divided into two shifts. The morning shift is from 8:30am to 12:30pm, and the afternoon shift is from 12:00pm to 4:00pm. Volunteers can sign up for one or both shifts or specify a different time-range that works best for the attorney. Based on past experience, the morning hours are the busiest hours. If you are interested in volunteering, please sign up here or contact us!

HPRP (Homeless Persons Representation Project) will provide attorney volunteers with a lunchtime training on expungement prior to Homeless Resource Day on March 19, 2015 at the Law Library.
