The Veterans Legal Project supports Community Legal Aid's mission by ensuring those who serve have access to the benefits and services they need to live in dignity with their service. Project staff support veterans and their families through holistic legal services, as well as collaborations for supportive services with local honor courts, VA hospitals, and veteran services commission offices.
