Our Staff

Everyone at HAP, from the legal staff to the administrators, is committed to the same compassionate goal of easing the burdens of homelessness. We draw as much inspiration from each other as we do from the people we serve, and we make concerted efforts toward making our office culture a supportive and inclusive one.

Board of Directors

HAP is incredibly fortunate and proud to have such a dedicated, passionate, and eclectic Board of Directors. Members include attorneys from a diversity of Philadelphia firms, social services providers, and community members with lived experience of homelessness.

Jessica Rickabaugh

HAP Board President
I am honored to serve as the President of HAP’s Board of Directors in 2023. Since 1990, HAP has been the only organization providing direct civil legal services to families and individuals experiencing homelessness in Philadelphia. HAP’s dedicated staff has worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic to continue its legal services and advocacy, while HAP continues to face increasing client need and challenges in the delivery of these services. HAP would not be able to serve the community without the assistance of volunteers, individual supporters, government agencies, partners in the non-profit community, corporations, foundations, law firms, and law schools. HAP is deeply grateful for donors who support HAP financially and volunteer their time to provide legal services. I encourage you to join HAP’s vital mission in any way that you are able.
