Research, Education and Advocacy to Combat Homelessness (REACH)

Law school can feel removed from the community we are in, fail to provide any practical skills or fail to address any of the reasons you came in the first place - REACH is here to help!

Research, Education & Advocacy to Combat Homelessness (REACH) is the law school’s primary student organization dedicated to directly serving the local homeless community and raising the profile of poverty law issues within the law school. REACH operates 2 weekly clinics in soup kitchens near NYU, where law students provide advice and referral on a wide range of issues including housing, public benefits, and health-related matters. REACH also publishes a comprehensive manual and organizes speakers and panels on issues relevant to poverty law.

What can YOU do:

  • Sign up at  for our e-list to stay up to date on everything going on with REACH
  • Volunteer at St. Xavier on Sundays from 1:00-3:00pm
  • Volunteer at Hebrew Union College (HUC) on Mondays from 5:00-6:00pm
  • Suggest topics you are interested in regarding housing, homelessness, public benefits or anything you are interested in related to our work!

We hope you can get involved and help, not only yourself in learning new skills, but also people in the community.
