General Assistance Advocacy Project
GAAP serves homeless and marginally housed San Franciscans by helping them obtain the public benefits to which they are entitled. So long as there is a need for public benefits, GAAP provides education, empowerment and advocacy to its clients through the involvement of law students and community volunteers. GAAP strives to affirm the human dignity of all the people served and to hold public agencies to the same standard.
GAAP has a full-time staff of six and a volunteer staff of nearly fifty. Volunteers commit to around three hours per week, and assist people with public benefits; we help people with county-based cash aid, Food Stamps and Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
