Legal Services Map
Click on your state or territory to find detailed information about programs that provide free legal services for youth and young adults who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness. If there is no program listed, you can contact the Homeless Youth Legal Network (HYLN) at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.lawhelp.org
To update a current listing or join the HYLN listserv, please e-mail email@example.com
The HYLN listserv is another way to connect young people with legal services, and to ask questions and share resources about legal issues that affect unhoused youth. Each email is useful and relevant – this is not a listserv that will clog up your inbox. Rather, it is a way to directly connect with experienced attorneys who represent young people and who are experts in many of the issues featured on this website.
If you think your program should be listed, please complete the HYLN Survey.
If you used this directory as a resource and a program could not provide you services, please contact HYLN to report this:
About the Homeless Youth Legal Network
The goal of the American Bar Association’s Homeless Youth Legal Network is to increase legal services for youth and young adults experiencing homelessness. The Network provides information and fosters collaboration to help attorneys and other advocates address gaps in legal services and improve outcomes for homeless youth and young adults. The Network’s focus includes civil legal matters, juvenile and criminal defense, and policy/systems change for minors as well as young adults through at least age 25. The Network includes a directory of legal services organized by state, an active national listserv (including referrals), model programs, technical assistance, trainings, community roundtables and countless other resources like publications, articles and webinars
