ALRP helped me with a Housing problem seven (7) years ago. I was so grateful to them and I decided to give back to this wonderful organization and volunteer two days per week in their office. It is now 7 years later and I continue to do volunteer work two days each week in their office and have become a major donor to this most deserving non-profit.

I had a very bad experience with this group that is supposed to help people with AIDS on small fixed disability incomes with pro-bono advice on legal problems. I was facing eviction from my inexpensive rent contolled apartment of 27 years, as it was being sold out from under me as a condo. Needing legal advise on negotiating with my landlord, I was referred by the ALRP to an attorney who demanded $500 to write a letter to my landlord and 40% of any settlement the landlord gave me to help me move. This was after the ALRP waited a week to return my calls for help, I'd left messages on 3 different days. I( told the African American woman attorney who wanted to charge me instead of providing the providing the pro-bono services the ALRP advertises and collects donations for, that she should be ashamed to ask someone making $1000/ month to pay $500 for a letter to help me avoid homelessness. The ALRP then refused to give me another referral because I was an "abusive" client. Don't give the ALRP a penny!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Their refusal to provide services to clients.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Fire the woman who retuns phone calls and makes referrals to lawyers for clients. Remove all layers who charge for services from their referral list.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Nothing!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

A woman who gave me an awful referral and then wouldn't give me a another one. A "pro-bono" lawyer who insisted on full market rate prices for her services.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Possibly provide the free legal services to indigent clients with AIDS, which is the organizations sole purpose.

Ways to make it better...

they had provided a pro-bono lawyer, the reason for their existence as an organization.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Lack of oversight, failure to provide services, possible fraud to donors.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Way bak in 1997n I did have a good experience with this group, which provided me with a free phone consultation with an attorney who provided me with advise on dealing with my debts, when due to illness I could no longer work. It's been 1 1/2 years since my terrible experience with the ALRP, I hope they've improved, but I'm skeptical.

Should this review be counted for a specific campaign?
