Feerick Center Veterans Rights Project

Veterans Rights Project

Providing Legal Information to Low-Income Veterans

The mission of the Feerick Center Veterans Rights Project (FCVRP) is to serve low-income veterans through Know-Your-Rights (KYRs) presentations and legal referrals. FCVRP recruits, trains, and supports volunteer attorneys and law students to provide legal information (via these presentations and consultations) to veterans on three topics: VA disability benefits, consumer debt, and child support modifications and enforcement.
