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.
