To serve our New Haven neighbors.
The Yale Hunger and Homelessness Action Project (YHHAP) is a student organization using education and action to alleviate housing and food insecurity in New Haven. Not-for-profit, we use our direct service, community involvement, and advocacy efforts to address root causes and support immediate and long-term solutions for local food and housing deprivation.
