Through the Justice Circle, the community offers financial support for legal aid services offered by the Law Project at the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless. Attorneys, paralegals, judges, law professors, and other professionals offer their support  for fair representation and equal protection under the law for people experiencing homelessness.

Founded in 1997, the Law Project is the only legal aid project in Illinois solely dedicated to serving people who are homeless or at-risk, helping them secure access to schools, housing and shelter, jobs or services. We are now registering this year’s Justice Circle members – please click HERE to join with your tax-deductible contribution.
