Serving Unhoused Sacramentans: Accessing Public Benefits (Webinar)

Beth Patel (she, her, hers) is a Staff Attorney at Legal Services of Northern California where she represents low-income clients in maintaining housing, benefits, healthcare, and economic stability. She is proud to have grown up in Sacramento and serve the legal needs of the community in her hometown. Prior to lawyering, she was a community organizer and communications consultant working to strengthen social movements for a more liberatory future for all.

Part of the Sacramento County Public Law Library’s ongoing series with service providers to serve unhoused Sacramentans, this MCLE will cover the wide variety of public benefits that are available to support our community with obtaining necessities like food and healthcare. We will cover what programs and sources of income are available, the basic eligibility criteria for these programs, and the common areas of difficulty for those who utilize these benefits. You will learn how to assist yourself or someone else with common public benefits issues.
