Program areas at JDC

Pro bono legal services program (pbls): pbls provides free legal and social services to low-income individuals and families in the areas of eviction defense, family law, domestic violence, consumer and tax law, and federal employment discrimination and civil rights matters. Also, nonprofit organizations serving low-income communities receive business law services. Jdc's volunteer recruitment, training, and retention program operates through pbls at jdc's office in downtown san francisco. Clients are the working poor, families, people with disabilities, and seniors who are served via volunteer attorneys, jdc staff attorneys, or at jdc's court-based programs. As a result of pbls' services, clients retain their housing, gain custody of their children, receive access to justice, and achieve greater stability.

Immigrant legal defense programs (ildp): idlp provides direct and volunteer legal services to immigrants and their families vulnerable to detention and deportation. Jdc acts as fiscal lead and primary host organization for the northern California rapid response and immigrant defense network (ncrridn) and northern California collaborative for immigrant justice (nccij), while also participating in the san francisco immigrant legal defense collaborative (sfildc). Ildp staff are based at jdc's offices in downtown san francisco, with services provided in the community, at immigrant detention facilities, and at the san francisco immigration court. As a result of these services, immigrants, their families, advocates, and other stakeholders have access to the legal resources they need to prevent immigrant detentions and deportations.

Homeless advocacy project (hap): hap provides free legal and social services to low-income individuals and families in the areas of eviction defense, public benefits advocacy, and immigration documentation. Clients are homeless or at imminent risk of homelessness, and approximately 75% have a mental health disability and/or physical disability. Chronic homelessness is common for clients, due in large part to issues stemming from their mental health disabilities. Hap operates a drop-in representation clinic at its office in the tenderloin neighborhood. Services are provided primarily by staff attorneys, legal advocates, and social workers. As a result of hap's services, clients retain their housing, access new housing, obtain a stable source of income, access medical and psychological care, and remove barriers to employment.
