HPRP’s staff and volunteers target legal services on issues that will directly assist someone in moving from homelessness into housing or in keeping the housing they need. Here is an example of one of HPRP's programs and its impact:
Helping Homeless Veterans
HPRP operates a legal clinic twice monthly at the VA Medical Center Annex in Baltimore, where homeless veterans who are receiving medical treatment can also receive legal assistance. In February 2015, HPRP opened a similar legal clinic on the grounds of the VA Medical Center in Perry Point, Cecil County.
HPRP makes a difference
Beth* is a veteran of the United States Air Force. She has several serious medical conditions which worsened over the years and made it impossible for her to keep working. Beth eventually became homeless with no income, living in a shelter in Baltimore City. An HPRP attorney represented Beth in her claim for VA service-connected benefits and she was awarded a 90% disability rating resulting in a back award of $16,000 and monthly benefits of $1,689. Another HPRP attorney also represented Beth in her administrative hearing for disability benefits at the Social Security Administration. Beth won her hearing and was awarded back benefits of $23,000 and monthly benefits of $871. Beth now has monthly income of over $2,500 and she is no longer homeless.
