Citizens for social justiceCitizens for Social Justice is currently seeking law student volunteers to participate in a rights literacy mentoring program as part of the effort to serve the Gainesville homeless community. Rights literacy mentoring is a component of CSJ’s student-run residential homeless rehabilitation program, which focuses on providing a comprehensive care program to individuals who wish to pursue housing, work and medical care. Citizens for Social Justice needs law students to assist attorneys in formulating a handbook of information regarding the myriad legal issues typically encountered by homeless individuals. Topics to be covered this semester include child support modification and sealing/expungement of criminal records. In addition to assisting in the preparation of the handbook, student volunteers may also help to instruct homeless individuals as to its use.
