Expungement

Recognizing that experience with the criminal justice system poses a significant barrier to obtaining housing and employment, and yet work and a home contribute to lower recidivism rates, HPRP attorneys work to eliminate restrictions on employment and housing for certain persons with criminal records by representing homeless people in proceedings to expunge records of charges that result in non-conviction (e.g. where the
prosecutor refuses to prosecute), advocating for expansion of statutory eligibility for expungement, and urging housing providers and employers to provide access.
