Programs & Services

As part of CPLP's mission to serve low-income Coloradans, the following initiatives and programs support both Colorado residents and the legal community to ensure all Coloradans have access to justice and civil legal support.

The Project

We serve Colorado's low-income residents in a variety of ways.  Most importantly, we empower people through education and legal representation starting at our free monthly legal clinic.  We are one of Denver's eviction defense programs, and our focused initiatives include:

 

  • Just Housing Initiative 

  • Mobile Home Initiative 

Current Initiatives

JUST HOUSING INITIATIVE

Focused on ensuring low-income Coloradans retain housing to prevent homelessness.

Monthly Pro Bono Legal Clinic

Self-advocacy starts with a

 free legal consult made possible by one of our volunteer attorneys.

Continuing legal education

CPLP strives to educate its wide network of volunteer attorneys on housing and tenant law by offering continuing education seminars.  

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS TRAINING WORKSHOPS

2015

CPLP starts a free legal clinic hosted at the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless to assist low-income Coloradans with civil legal issues.

Today our strength has expanded through the work and dedication of an incredible team of volunteer lawyers from the community, supported by CPLP.

We place a variety of cases from our client population while continuing our focus on evictions and housing issues.

As the affordable housing crisis grew, CPLP expanded its activities to focus on evictions, know-your-rights clinics and working with legislators and community groups.

CPLP launched its Mobile Home Initiative pilot program in Adams County. CPLP hopes to expand this program statewide in 2021.
