About  Us

Founded in 1987, we use the power of the law to secure dignity, opportunity, and well-being for people facing illness or disability.

In the last year, we've expanded our "legal care" for people with HIV to also stand up for individuals living with other chronic, disabling, and stigmatized health conditions. This includes mental illness, homelessness, and children and youth with special needs.

To reflect these changes, we changed our name to Legal Council for Health Justice.

AIDS Legal Council will remain a strong foundational program of the agency, along with newly merged programs, Chicago Medical-Legal Partnership for Children and Homeless Outreach Project.

1. a diabetic

2. a cancer survivor

3. an asthmatic

4. someone with allergies

5. a heart disease patient

6. an HIV/AIDS patient

7. someone with chronic lung disease

8. someone with Cystic Fibrosis
