Delaware Law Grad Makes Local Impact
“Housing is probably one of the most visible forms of inequity in our society at large and Delaware County is no exception. Inequity in Delaware County housing is a direct manifestation of larger social inequities in race, economics, and wealth. Our project has the ability to curb and course correct some of those inequities by working systemically to address these problematic policies in housing,” says Delaware Law graduate Jordan Casey ’13, who has worked as a staff attorney with the Health, Education and Legal Assistance Project (HELP) - a medical-legal partnership at Widener University Delaware Law School - since 2016.
Jordan’s work with HELP as a housing attorney involves providing free legal services to expecting mothers and those with children under two-years of age who are enrolled in the Healthy Start Program or the Nurse-Family Partnership under The Foundation for Delaware County.
