Lawyers Preventing and Ending Homelessness

Public Counsel is part of the Lawyers Preventing and Ending Homelessness program in L.A. County. If you are experiencing homelessness, or are about to become homeless, you may be able to receive assistance with legal issues such as:

  • Eviction prevention
  • Landlord dispute resolution
  • Government benefits
  • Worker compensation/unemployment benefits
  • Clearing financial debt
  • Professional licenses and identification
  • Expungement of criminal records. 

PLEASE NOTE: This program is location-based and Public Counsel only serves people who live or stay within L.A. County’s Service Planning Area (SPA) 6 – an area that covers South L.A., Watts, Lynwood, and Compton. Other legal nonprofits serve the rest of L.A. County. 

If you are located within the boundaries on this map (SPA 6) and would like legal assistance, you must first contact our partner organization HOPICS to conduct an intake appointment to determine if you are eligible for services.

If you are not located within our service area, please call 211 to determine where to go for local services at a Coordinated Entry System (CES) agency.
