Description

The Center for Human Rights and Constitutional Law is a Los Angeles non-profit organization that focuses its work on the civil and human rights of insular minorities including immigrants, refugees, children, and indigenous peoples. We are looking for individual to begin on the Tents-4-Homeless project, which aims to address the homelessness crisis in Los Angeles County. It has been determined that the lack of access to shelter is one of the leading causes of homelessness. Since Los Angeles has the largest population of unsheltered homeless in the country, Tents-4-Homeless strives to alleviate this need through a variety of projects. This is a program hopes to benefit numerous individuals who are currently experiencing homelessness. Given the dynamic nature of the projects that Tents-4-Homeless aims to undertake, we are looking for an equally diverse group of individuals from all walks of life who are willing to undertake them. There are different aspects of the project that will require many different competences.
