Homeless Advocacy and Prevention

The Homeless Advocacy and Prevention (HAP) Program addresses 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 debt, while at the same time providing general advice and referrals for other essentials of life such as access to health care and subsistence income.


For assistance with any of these issues, please contact our general intake line to be connected to the right person for your need. 

Call (315) 471-3409, email housing@vlpcny.org or start an online intake HERE

*If you need an ASL interpreter or an interpreter for any other language, you can email or call the program ahead of time so that we can schedule in in-person interpreter. We also always have telephone-based language interpretation available at all of our programs anytime.
