ALRP Referral Project

The ALRP Referral Project: When ALRP was founded in 1983, our main focus was to refer people living with HIV/AIDS in San Francisco to free or no cost volunteer attorneys, and to provide the support these attorneys needed to help our clients. Since then, ALRP has handled over 100,000 legal matters for our clients. Our services include housing, employment, insurance, confidentiality matters, family law, credit, government benefits or public accommodations, wills, power of attorney and guardianship contracts. Today, ALRP serves over 2,000 clients each year in 7 counties surrounding the San Francisco Bay, and our volunteer Panel numbers over 700.

Population(s) Served
Adults
People with HIV/AIDS

The ALRP Housing Program: ALRP's housing program has become the centerpiece of our service provision, with more than one-third of all ALRP cases now comprised of housing issues. Many of these clients are facing not only housing discrimination, but also eviction, threatening their very survival.

Population(s) Served
Adults
People with HIV/AIDS

The ALRP Outreach Program: This program ensures that ALRP's services are available to underserved communities such as people of color, women, transgender constituents, people with substance/mental health issues along with HIV/AIDS, and the indigent. Outreach efforts include the provision of community clinics, outreach presentations to community-based organizations (CBOs) in collaboration with local bar associations, and various partnership alliances such as the current partnership with AIDS Project East Bay.

Population(s) Served
Adults
People with HIV/AIDS

The ALRP Immigrant HIV Assistance Project (IHAP): Provides free immigration legal services to HIV positive immigrants living in San Francisco. IHAP services include assistance with obtaining legal permanent residence (green cards), HIV waivers, political asylum, suspension of deportation, and naturalization.

Population(s) Served
Adults
People with HIV/AIDS

As the AIDS epidemic has changed, so has ALRP. In an effort to continue to meet the needs of our clients, ALRP launched the HIV/AIDS Insurance Protection Project (HIPP) to help our clients retain and gain access to medical/disability insurance and prescription drug coverage. No one else in the San Francisco Bay Area addresses this emerging and critical need for legal assistance and advocacy in insurance-related matters.

Population(s) Served
Adults
People with HIV/AIDS

The HIV Consumer Advocacy Project (HCAP) is designed to assist people living with HIV/AIDS who have experienced difficulty accessing services from Ryan White Program-funded agencies located in San Francisco, San Mateo and Marin Counties. HCAP also helps HIV+ consumers resolve challenges in accessing services from agencies funded by the San Francisco Department of Public Health HIV Health Services.
