Georgia Law Center for the Homeless

In 1983, a small number of attorneys working in Downtown Atlanta noticed an overwhelming need for specialized legal services that focused specifically on the homeless. They decided to form a nonprofit that could focus solely in this area. Thus, the Georgia Law Center for the Homeless was born. After more than 30 years of service, the Georgia Law Center continues to play a critical role in the continuum of care for homeless individuals and families in Georgia. By addressing the barriers to stability and independence that often underlie homelessness, the Law Center helps their clients transition out of homelessness. Simply put, they are a top-notch civil law firm, providing quality legal services at no cost to clients who are homeless. Services: The Law Center’s attorneys and social workers work in concert to develop a complete plan for clients to solve not only the legal issue at hand, but also underlying social issues that inhibit clients to move out of homelessness. Legal Services The Law Center employs attorneys who, together, bring 20+ years of legal experience. Their specialties include issues in Housing Law, Family Law, Fair Labor Standards, and Special Needs populations (including Veterans and individuals with mental and/or physical disabilities). Social Services The Law Center draws on the expertise of a client advocate team who work to address the underlying issues of homelessness. The support services they provide include: housing and rental assistance, as well as assistance applying for social security insurance and disability insurance.
