Austin Medical-Legal Partnership

People’s formed a collaboration with Texas Legal Services Center (TLSC) in 2013 to respond to the overwhelming number of low-income patients dealing with legal issues that negatively impact their health.  An attorney works on-site at the clinic, providing legal assistance and representation for People’s patients on a variety of issues, including public benefits (Social Security and disability, Medicare/Medicaid, TANF, SNAP, etc.); housing (Section 8, subsidized housing, habitability, etc.); advance directives (powers of attorney, wills and living wills); guardianship and kinship care; and immigration.
