Hugh Lane Wellness Foundation Launches LGBTQ+ legal services program to address ongoing COVID needs and inequality.
Hugh Lane Wellness Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of in-house legal services to address the high priority legal needs of LGBTQ+ and HIV community members in our region. Services will target those most marginalized through free, need-based civil legal aid services.
This project is the first nonprofit initiative in the region to specialize in LGBTQ+ legal services, which is essential because LGBTQ+ and HIV community members are more likely to have adverse interactions across legal, housing and business systems. Primary services provided will include eviction defense, utility services restoration, public benefits assistance and civil expungement of criminal records. Referrals will be accepted beginning in May, 2021
This program is possible thanks to the generous support of the Henry L. Hillman Foundation.
