New Homeless Veterans Grant Awarded
LASEV is honored to be a recipient of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ new Legal Services for Homeless Veterans and Veterans At-Risk For Homelessness grant. This grant funds an attorney and social worker to focus on the needs of homeless and at-risk veterans throughout our heavily military populated service area. Pursuant to this grant, our project staff assists veterans with a variety of civil legal needs to obtain stability, including accessing government benefits and health care, housing, employment, consumer, and family law matters, criminal defense in matters symptomatic of homelessness, and requests for an upgrade to the character of discharge from the U.S. Armed Forces.
