Home Forward

Community Legal Services for Home Forward Residents

The Metropolitan Public Defender, in coordination with Home Forward, offers a host of legal services for Home Forward residents and section 8 voucher-holders as well as parents of those in Home Forward. The goal is to mitigate the impact of the criminal justice system by reducing the barriers to employment, housing, education, and other opportunities. MPD attorneys assess on an individual basis whether people living in public housing or with a section 8 voucher are eligible for a wide-range of services, including:

• Expunging Criminal Records
• Reducing Felonies to Misdemeanors
• Navigating Current Court Requirements
• Changing Court Orders
• Correcting Court Records
• Converting Court Fines and Fees
• Sex Offender Registration Relief
• Appealing Designations and Exclusions
• And more.

If you have ever been:
Stopped by the police or charged with an offense, there are probably official records that are preventing you from living your life to its full potential. Call us today to see whether you qualify for any of the above services.
Call 503-225-9100 and get on a path to the housing, employment and education you were meant to have.
All conversations are completely confidential and not shared with Home Forward.
You must be a Home Forward resident or have a Home Forward Section 8 voucher to qualify. If you don’t live in Home Forward housing, but have children that do, you also qualify.
