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.

Beacon Law has reached capacity and is currently not accepting applications for legal services until further notice.
