The Health & Welfare Program provides critical legal services to Alameda County residents who are at risk of poor health outcomes due to poverty, unsafe living conditions, homelessness, inadequate health care coverage and other destabilizing social conditions. The program provides legal services to clients through the following three projects:
- The HIV/AIDS Law Project addresses the varied legal needs of low-income, HIV-positive Alameda County residents, with a focus on reducing barriers to care created by lack of stable income, housing, and health care coverage.
- The Medical-Legal Partnership Project provides a range of legal services to patients referred to us through our with partnerships with local hospitals and community health clinics, including UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland, Highland Hospital, and La Clinica
- The Public Benefits & Justice Project is a self-help clinic focused on helping low-income Alameda County residents maintain continued access to safety-net public income and health care benefits, including Cal WORKS, Cal Fresh, General Assistance, Medi-Cal, Medicare, In-Home Supportive Services, etc.
