Mission Statement

To provide education, empowerment and advocacy to those who need it most. GAAP serves over 2,000 homeless and marginally housed San Franciscans each month by helping them obtain and retain the public benefits to which they are entitled.

Description

GAAP was founded in 1985 by a group of students from University of California-Hastings College of Law in response to the unmet need for advocacy on behalf of the homeless and those in imminent danger of joining their ranks. At its humble beginning, GAAP volunteers worked out of a local San Francisco homeless shelter two days a week. Now, GAAP provides free legal assistance, counseling, and supportive services to more than 2,000 clients a year, most of whom are homeless, disabled or both, out of our permanent location in the heart of San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood.
