The mission of the Material Aid and Advocacy Program (MAAP) is to support and empower unhoused and underhoused community members, through material aid, access to resources, organizing support and advocacy opportunities.

 

Working with unhoused community members and allies, we seek systemic solutions that address the root causes of homelessness, poverty, and inequality. Housing justice, racial justice, ending the racist war on drugs, prison abolition, decriminalization of homelessness, accessible and comprehensive healthcare for all are our work. While doing this we support people in meeting their self-identified needs through outreach and sweep support, and at our low-threshold drop-in space where people access material aid and meals; have risk reduction conversations and develop safety plans; connect to resources and providers; build community; care for each other; and organize.
