Founded in 1988, the Homeless Advocacy Project (HAP) is the Justice & Diversity Center’s (JDC) largest individual project. HAP provides legal services and supporting social services to individuals and families in San Francisco who are homeless or at imminent risk of homelessness, while prioritizing individuals who have mental health disabilities. HAP serves over 1500 clients per year through the work of staff attorneys, social workers and advocates, student interns, and volunteer legal and social service professionals. The most common legal issues addressed at HAP are federal disability benefits advocacy, eviction defense in emergency situations, and immigration documentation.
