Homelessness

Community Homeless Law Center Project

The goal of the Community Homeless Law Center Project is to remove legal barriers to obtaining and maintaining permanent housing. The Project uses a wrap-around approach to address the needs of homeless clients that involves both legal and social services.

Legal services can address health, public benefits, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), domestic violence, Homeless Court, consumer, education, child support, and other matters.

Veterans Law Center

In partnership with the California Veterans Assistance Foundation (CVAF), GBLA’s Veterans Law Center provides legal services to Veterans who are homeless or at imminent risk of homelessness.

For CVAF clients, the Center focuses on eliminating legal barriers to permanent housing. These can include a wide variety of civil legal issues, including landlord-tenant, consumer credit and debt, access to public benefits, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits, Homeless Court, and others.
