Who we are

The National Housing Law Project’s mission is to advance housing justice for poor people and communities.  We achieve this by strengthening and enforcing the rights of tenants, increasing housing opportunities for underserved communities, and preserving and expanding the nation’s supply of safe and affordable homes. 


NHLP hosts the national Housing Justice Network (HJN), a vast field network of over 1,500 community-level housing advocates and tenant leaders. HJN member organizations are committed to protecting affordable housing and tenants’ rights for low-income families.

For over five decades, Western Center has advocated on behalf of Californians experiencing poverty in every branch of government—from the courts to the Legislature. Through the lens of economic and racial justice, we litigate, educate and advocate around health care, housing, and public benefits policies and administration.
