Programs + Services

HPRP is Maryland's only legal services and advocacy organization dedicated to eliminating homelessness.

Legal Handshake

Our staff and volunteers provide free legal services, including advice, counsel, education, representation and advocacy, for low-income persons who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Pursuing systemic solutions to homelessness is also  a critical part of HPRP's work.

In our community-based legal program, HPRP’s staff and volunteers deliver legal services through outreach in shelters, soup kitchens, welfare offices, community centers and the street.

While we may not be able to provide direct legal representation or assistance in all cases, we are committed to supporting our community however we can. We may be able to offer referrals, point you towards resources, or at least provide a listening ear. Please do not hesitate to contact us to see how we may be able to work with you.

The Homeless Persons Representation Project begins the process of providing legal advice or representation with an intake conducted over the phone. Please call us at (410) 685-6589 if you are seeking legal assistance. If you would prefer to contact us by mail, our address is 201 N. Charles Street, Suite 1400, Baltimore, MD 21201.


HPRP cannot respond to individual requests for legal assistance nor provide legal advice through this website or via email.
