ALRP Legal Eagles - 2024
AIDS is NOT over. Last year, ALRP handled 2,653 legal matters for our clients – the most in our 37-year history! This record number includes 946 housing matters, 355 insurance matters and 308 immigration matters.
The number of people living with HIV coming to ALRP for legal help grew by 77% over the last 15 years. Many are living in poverty, and more than 70% are older adults. All are living with a compromised immune system, and many have underlying conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, kidney and liver disease, and respiratory illnesses.
Now COVID-19 is threatening their health. COVID-19 also threatens the nonprofit service providers, like ALRP, that they rely on. More than ever, they need a good attorney on their side.
The coronavirus crisis is scarily reminiscent of the early days of the AIDS crisis back in the 1980s. ALRP was at the forefront then, with our volunteer attorneys writing wills for people with AIDS at their hospital bedsides.
WITH YOUR SUPPORT, ALRP will continue to be there for our clients through this new crisis – helping them maintain their health by resolving their legal problems; helping to keep them in their homes; protecting their disability insurance; and connecting them with critically needed community services.
