ALRP continues to keep people with HIV housed, employed, insured, safe and healthy. Yet the number of clients coming to us continues to grow (by over 66% in the last 15 years). In 2018, ALRP handled a record 2,483 cases for our clients, including a record 933 housing cases and 240 immigration cases.
More people are living with HIV than ever before. With no cure for HIV/AIDS in sight, people living with HIV/AIDS continue to face great challenges and uncertainty, including possible loss of their housing, disability income and access to medical care. When people with HIV/AIDS face these immense challenges, their only hope is a zealous legal advocate who will go to the front lines to fight for them.
At ALRP, we give everything we’ve got – heart and soul – to help our clients meet these challenges. Our staff, Panel attorneys, Board members and volunteers work tirelessly to help keep our clients in their homes, retain their disability income, gain access to medical care, and avoid deportation. It takes everything just for us to keep up with the ever-growing number of clients coming to us for legal help.
If we are to continue to meet the legal needs of our clients, we must make sure that ALRP has the capacity to serve them. The gap between what ALRP’s government contracts cover and the true cost of providing services can only be addressed by increased support from individuals.
While ALRP continues to leverage almost a million dollars in donated legal services each year from Panel attorneys, increasingly ALRP relies on its staff attorneys to serve its clients. We have launched the 2019 ALRP Heart & Soul Campaign with the goal of raising $100,000 this year from individuals. Your Campaign gift will ensure that ALRP continues to be there.
ALRP programs such as our AIDS Housing Advocacy Project (AHAP), HIV/AIDS Insurance Protection Project (HIPP), and HIV 50+ Project provide these critical services for those who are most in need.
All of us at ALRP are heartened by your generosity, leadership and commitment. You know that giving from the heart is good for the soul.
Our clients need you to be there for them – when they are facing homelessness, poverty, loss of medical care, social isolation, depression, and even death. If ALRP is to continue to effectively meet the legal needs of our clients, we will need you – heart and soul – to sustain ALRP’s work.
The 2019 ALRP Heart & Soul Campaign has a goal of raising $100,000 this year. Your Campaign gift can ensure that ALRP continues to be there for all who come to our doors seeking legal support. A $1,000 Heart Circle leadership gift will enable ALRP attorneys to respond to calls for help in a heartbeat, and to be on the front lines fighting for our clients.
Many of you have been touched by the epidemic. You have volunteered, you have donated, and you have opened your hearts. You are the heart & soul of the ALRP family.
Our clients need YOU to be there for them in this time of crisis – when they are facing homelessness, poverty, loss of medical care and life-sustaining medications, social isolation, depression, and even death. If ALRP is to continue to effectively meet the legal needs of our clients, we will need the entire ALRP family – staff, volunteers and supporters – to sustain ALRP’s work.
Let people living with HIV/AIDS know that they are not alone, they have family, they have you. Please support the ALRP Heart & Soul Campaign.
