HAP Board President, Michael B. Hayes

It is truly an honor to serve as the President of HAP’s Board of Directors in 2020 (HAP’s 30th Anniversary!). For the past three decades, the Homeless Advocacy Project has been the only legal services organization to provide direct civil legal services to homeless families and individuals in Philadelphia. HAP also advocates for the needs of the City’s homeless population writ large, promoting positive changes in policies to address those needs.  Since its inception, HAP has conducted legal clinics in homeless shelters and soup kitchens throughout Philadelphia. By recruiting and training volunteer attorneys, legal assistants, and law students to staff these clinics, HAP has been able to provide free legal counseling and representation to a population that is truly in need and not able to be adequately served by other legal services programs. HAP would not have been able to achieve this success without the valuable assistance of government agencies, partners in the non-profit community, law firms, and area corporations, in addition to other donors who support HAP both financially and by volunteering to provide legal and other services.  I urge you to contact HAP to see how you can support our vital mission. Working with HAP and providing direct legal services to HAP clients has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life, and I know it will be for you too.
