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. In addition to staff attorneys and paralegals, volunteer lawyers help Beacon Law meet the legal needs of Houston's homeless.
