AIDS Legal Services Project in Texas

A statewide tollfree AIDS Legal Assistance Line is now available for people with HIV infection in Texas. The AIDS Legal Resource Project of the Texas Human Rights Foundation established the service, which provides legal assistance and attorney referral to HIV-positive people and people with AIDS and ARC. The project complements local AIDS legal service committees and fills in gaps in areas where there are no such services. People in need can receive the services free. The project will train and support interested attorneys. Employment, housing, insurance, access to health care, estate planning, public benefits, bankruptcy, and personal finance management services are all available through the hotline service.
