Boston’s Homeless Court aims to serve the unique needs of homeless defendants, who often find themselves cycling through the court system for minor offenses, or in contempt for failing to respond to summonses they never receive because they’re living on the streets. It’s no quick fix. Defendants must make a year-long commitment, get counseling and job training. But those who complete the program find themselves with as close to a fresh start as they are likely to get.
