Howard Brown Health Center ( HBHC ), LAF ( formerly Legal Assistance Foundation ) and AIDS Legal Council of Chicago ( ALCC ) have announced the debut of their joint medical/legal clinic.
Held at Howard Brown Health Center's 4025. N. Sheridan Rd. location, this clinic aims at providing civil legal assistance for HBHC clients and patients who make an appointment or who are referred by their HBHC medical provider, therapist or case manager.
Open every Wednesday at 1-5 p.m., a legal advocate sits with patients for a 30-minute appointment offering high-quality and culturally competent review of their legal matters. Depending on the type of case, the patient will receive immediate legal advice, legal representation by ALCC or LAF, or a referral to another specialized legal resource.
For those patients who cannot make Wednesday appointments or who have pressing legal matters that cannot wait, there is a direct access referral process between HBHC and ALCC/LAF in place.
