Who We Are
ALRP's mission is to help people with HIV/AIDS maintain or improve their health by resolving their legal issues.  ALRP accomplishes this mission by providing free and low-cost legal services to people with HIV/AIDS in the San Francisco Bay Area.
 
ALRP is the only institution in the San Francisco Bay Area solely dedicated to providing free and low-cost legal assistance and education on virtually any civil matter to persons living with HIV/AIDS. This includes such widely disparate areas as housing, bankruptcy/credit, immigration, employment, insurance, confidentiality matters, family law, government benefits, and public accommodations. ALRP accomplishes this mission through either direct representation of clients by one of ALRP's ten attorneys or by careful placement of clients with one of ALRP's 700 Panel attorneys.
 
Founded in 1983, ALRP has handled over 65,000 legal matters for our clients over the last 31 years. ALRP's efforts help our clients:
 
    Avoid unlawful evictions - fulfilling their basic need for shelter
    Protect their assets, and their children's future
    Reduce their stress and improve their health
    Assure their personal dignity
    Protect and regain lost jobs and insurance/medical benefits
 
ALRP's goals are to provide legal counsel and representation on often-complex legal matters with respect to HIV/AIDS for a community of individuals often least able to afford it, and to leverage the resources of the private bar for the public good. In the process, ALRP increases resources dedicated to the public interest through the private market, and increase the skill and capacity of the legal community to handle the intricacies of HIV/AIDS related law and representation.
