Any minor struggling with homelessness alone has a legal issue, because someone is legally responsible for caring for each child. Minors struggling with homelessness need legal advice to understand their options for safety, to access emergency shelter, education and medical care. Many minors need an attorney to help them navigate and access immigration relief, child protective services, educational systems and juvenile and family court proceedings.
