The Homeless Persons Representation Project (HPRP) works to end homelessness in Maryland by providing free legal services, including advice, counsel, education, representation, and advocacy, to people who are experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness. HPRP’s staff and volunteers pursue this mission by offering legal services in shelters, soup kitchens, welfare offices, community centers, and on the street. HPRP’s direct representation informs broader-based systemic advocacy and impact litigation to address the root causes of homelessness.
Since its founding in 1987, HPRP has pursued impact litigation to achieve significant victories and settlements for its clients, including cases to remedy delays in government processing of subsistence benefits, and long-standing housing discrimination and residential segregation. It has also led or co-led landmark state and local policy initiatives such as the HOME Act, the Ending Youth Homelessness Act, and legislation to reform Maryland’s expungement and public benefit programs. Driven by the belief in the power of people to determine their own solutions to systemic issues affecting their lives, HPRP actively engages persons with lived experience in advocacy efforts to improve tenant rights, end housing discrimination, end youth homelessness, and decriminalize homelessness.
