The LUCHA Law Project promotes the availability of and access to housing for Chicago area low- and moderate-income households through legal representation, individual and public advocacy, supportive services and education. To this end, The LUCHA Law Project will serve as:
An Extension of LUCHA's Mission. The LUCHA Law Project is an extension of LUCHA's mission to affirmatively further fair and affordable housing. All services are provided in Spanish & English and reflect LUCHA's commitment to serving Latino and other high-need communities.
An Advocate for Fair Housing. The LUCHA LAW Project advocates for fair housing by connecting with and educating key housing and finance stakeholders on their legal responsibilities.
A Source for Community Education. The LUCHA Law Project educates community members on their legal rights and teaches them how to access those rights through negotiation, document filing, or referrals to government bodies for adjudication.
A Pro Bono Civil Law Firm. The LUCHA Law Project provides pro bono closings to as many of LUCHA's first-time homebuyers as resources will allow. As our success and resources grow, we will expand our legal services to include representation in other housing-related matters.
