Street Outreach Court Fights Homelessness

Monday, June 14, 2013

A local initiative helps the homeless fight their way off the streets by getting their legal lives in order.

Street Outreach Court Detroit is a collaborative project of the Michigan's 36th Judicial District Court designed to open the doors of justice to homeless people who have already demonstrated sincere and sustained effort to end their homelessness.

Craig speaks with Jeyesh Patel, an Attorney at Street Outreach, and Dennis Sloan, a former Homeless man, about how participants get a plan, get to work, and get relief from fines, costs and other barriers to reentering society.
