For Veterans

The Veterans Law Project helps low-income veterans overcome service-related legal barriers that prevent them from living self-sufficiently and seeking economic opportunity.

The Veterans Law Project provides civil legal services to homeless Veterans and Veterans at risk for homelessness. “At risk” Veterans include those who (1) couch surf or live in someone else’s home due to finances, (2) have been given an eviction notice, (3) have moved two or more times in the last 60 days, (4) live in a hotel or motel, (5) are fleeing or attempting to flee domestic violence, or (6) have otherwise unstable housing.

If you are homeless or facing homelessness, email veterans@legalaidnc.org or leave a voicemail on the VLP Hotline at (919) 850-5959.
