Richland County Homeless Court

The Homeless Court- Case Preparation Project is a terrific opportunity to work on a case from beginning to end!  Volunteers will be assigned by the 5th Circuit Public Defender’s Office to a case that is pending before the Homeless Court. With some guidelines in hand the volunteer will seek information, interview the client, contact the service providers and do what is necessary to prepare the case for a hearing before the Homeless Court.  There is even a possibility that the volunteer can help present the information gathered to the Court. The Homeless Court meets at 2 at Transitions on the last Tuesday of each month. Most of the work can now be done virtually.  Check the full description on the Pro Bono Program Website or contact the Director to sign up!
