Beacon Law 

We champion equal justice for homeless, low-income individuals and remedy the conditions that burden and marginalize them.


90% of America's civil legal aid need goes unmet, but that's not the case with our Beacon Law program. Volunteers help Beacon Law meet the legal needs of Houston's homeless.

An in-person application kiosk is set up at The Beacon Day Center and is open on Fridays.  Sign up is from 7am-9am and it is first come, first served.  


Additionally, our online application is available for case manager referral only unless otherwise specified due to capacity.
