Jackie Ebert
Equal Justice Works Fellow, Sponsored by the Florida Bar Foundation @Legal Services of Greater Miami, Inc.
After earning her Bachelors in Social Work, Jackie spent a summer working as the Program Director at a camp in upstate New York for children in the foster care and shelter system before returning home to Green Bay, Wisconsin, to work at an emergency seasonal homeless shelter. Driven by this work, Jackie earned her M.S.W. from Washington University in St. Louis in December 2018 and J.D. from Harvard Law in May 2019. Thanks to a fellowship from the David A. Grossman Fund through Harvard Law, Jackie was able to join the Legal Services team to address the legal barriers to safe, sustainable housing for guests of Lotus House, a shelter serving homeless women and families. Jackie is the recipient of an Equal Justice Works Fellowship through the Florida Bar Foundation which will allow her to build upon her initial project to work to develop a model where social service providers and attorneys work more collaboratively to better address the legal issues surrounding homelessness.
