Legal Advocacy Program Board

In 2013, Covenant House New York launched its first Legal Advocacy Program Board. The Legal Advocacy Program Board oversees the Legal Advocacy Center, which is designed to meet the needs of homeless youth through direct legal services, legislative advocacy, research and education. 

Members of the Legal Advocacy Program Board focus their efforts on generating resources and support to help strengthen our offering of legal services to our kids.
