Homeless Advocacy and Prevention

The Homeless Advocacy and Prevention (HAP) Program focuses on addressing legal needs that often are barriers to rising out of homelessness, such as child support/custody issues, landlord tenant disputes, obtaining I.D. cards, counseling on consumer issues and assistance with Social Security applications, while at the same time providing general advice and referrals for other essentials of life such as access to health care and subsistence income.
