Appeal of Housing Eligibility Denial

A woman was denied housing eligibility by Denver Housing Authority because of petty criminal issues caused by being homeless (open container, curfew violation, trespass for camping). After attending one of CPLP’s monthly legal clinics , the woman was paired with a volunteer attorney. The following day, the attorney accompanied the client to a Denver Housing Authority appeal hearing. After advocating for the denial to be lifted, the client was reinstated for housing eligibility.
