About HPRPThe Homeless Persons Representation Project, Inc. (HPRP), founded in 1987 and separately incorporated as a 501(c)(3) in 1990, provides free legal services to and advocacy on behalf of a primarily Baltimore City-based population of people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. HPRP’s mission is to end homelessness in Maryland by providing free legal services, including advice, counsel, education, representation and advocacy, for low-income persons who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Guided by a profound understanding of our clients’ barriers to accessing traditional legal services, HPRP staff and volunteers honor and accommodate these roadblocks by directly serving clients where they live, eat, and spend time. HPRP staff and volunteers meet with clients in the community – shelters, public benefit offices, soup kitchens, the streets, community meetings – and in the HPRP office. Direct representation informs broader-based systemic advocacy and impact litigation to address the root causes of homelessness.
