What We Do 


Colorado Poverty Law Project (CPLP) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization with the mission to recruit and coordinate volunteer attorneys to participate in two monthly pro bono legal clinics at the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless (CCH) and Father Woody's Haven of Hope.


In partnership with the Denver Bar Association, CPLP provides resources to enable volunteers, at their discretion, to provide a range of services to attendees, including answering on-the-spot questions, providing referrals, and, if appropriate, providing limited representation.


The legal clinics are scheduled for the third Wednesday of each month from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at CCH’s Stout Street Health Center, located at 2130 Stout St. in Denver.


Eviction can equate to a sentence of homelessness. Many individuals may experience eviction, despite having a meritorious defense because they simply do not know their rights. It does not have to be that way. 

CPLP in partnership with Colorado Legal Services, Denver City Council, and several other stakeholders is part of the Denver  Eviction Legal Defense Program. If you are in eviction proceedings and would benefit from the assistance of legal counsel, please contact us or Colorado Legal Services. You may apply for assistance in room 483 of the City and County Building located at 1437 Bannock Street Denver, Colorado.
