Learn about the inspiring work of Homeless Court in Massachusetts in the latest episode of the MassBar Beat podcast, now available here.

Homeless Court is a specialty court in Massachusetts that gives homeless individuals with minor infractions a chance to clear their records and get a new start. MBA Young Lawyers Division leaders Tori Santoro (chair) and Samuel Segal (chair-elect) had an opportunity to visit this "court of second chances" at the Pine Street Inn shelter in Boston.

In "Homeless Court: A Second Chance at Hope," Santoro and Segal share observations from their visit, along with interviews and stories of hope from Boston Municipal Court Judge Kathleen Coffey; the Pine Street Inn's Elizabeth Condron, who coordinates Homeless Court; two Homeless Court participants, who were interviewed after their hearings; and MBA President Jeffrey Catalano.
