The National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty (NLCHP) is the only national legal advocacy organization dedicated solely to preventing and ending homelessness. Our attorneys fight for society’s most vulnerable members in courtrooms and the halls of legislatures. Through impact litigation, policy advocacy, and public education, the Law Center addresses the root causes of homelessness at the local, state, and national levels.
The Law Center is seeking a talented attorney with at least two years of experience to join our dynamic legal team. Together, our attorneys use litigation, advocacy, and media strategies to: ensure that homeless children and youth can attend school, protect housing rights for survivors of domestic violence and tenants in foreclosed properties, promote implementation of the human right to housing as an alternative to the criminalization of homelessness, defend the civil rights of homeless persons, and ensure that vacant government property can be used to provide housing and services for homeless persons. The attorney hired will focus most of his/her time on our education work, while also assisting with our domestic violence initiatives as well as other program areas as needed.
