LINC

LINC (Local Information Network for Change) is the Law Center’s network of state and local organizations that work with and on behalf of homeless and poor people.  LINC ensures that the Law Center remains responsive to what’s happening on the ground, well helping state and local groups bring their concerns to a national stage,

LINC members are: direct service providers (e.g., shelters, soup kitchens, food banks); legal service providers; community and grass roots advocates (e.g., state and local coalitions for the homeless, and organizations of homeless and formerly homeless people); and individual advocates (e.g., social workers, homeless liaisons and case managers).
