Veterans recovering from homelessness and mental illness face a huge array of issues including, but not limited to, family, tax, criminal, pardon, DMV, immigration, child support, landlord-tenant, foreclosure, consumer and student debt, consumer fraud, and social security benefits and overpayments. The CVLC also helps veterans secure medical, educational and compensatory benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs and corrections to military records from the Department of Defense.
CVLC meets with clients at a VA community mental health facility. CVLC hopes all of its volunteers will come to see the special facility where we work and how this arrangement serves our clients. We also offer space for pro bono attorneys to meet with clients. However, most pro bono work happens at the volunteer’s office.
