ABA Homeless Youth Legal Network

Update on the ABA Homeless Youth Legal Network

The Network was formed to provide information and foster collaboration in order to help attorneys and other advocates address existing gaps in legal services, and to improve outcomes for homeless youth and young adults. In just the past few months, the Network has:

  • Launched a website, www.ambar.org/HYLN, which contains additional information about the Network, and will be a repository for resources related to meeting homeless youth’s legal needs.
  • Surveyed over 300 individuals/groups about the legal needs of youth in their community (if you have not yet participated, please consider completing our survey at http://bit.ly/2mMGYl9).
  • Launched a listserv for attorneys and other advocates for homeless youth with over 250 members (to join, please e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
