This workshop will describe how the medical-legal partnership (MLP) model is being used to bring civil legal aid services to individuals experiencing homelessness as a way to improve health and increase access to safe, reliable housing. Representatives from a comprehensive day services center and their civil legal aid partner will share how they established an MLP and showcase the impact legal interventions have had on mutual clients, sharing data collected since partnership startup. Discussion will also include lessons learned from quality improvement cycles that have drastically improved MLP services.
