The $650K That’s Saving Chicago’s HIV Clinic Howard Brown Health Center From Closing. For Now

Chicago’s Howard Brown Health Center, which has spent the last 35 years caring for the city’s HIV afflicted gay and lesbian community, and serves 36,000 clients annually, began last month with a plea for help: short on cash, Howard Brown would face certain closure unless it was able to raise funds. Fifty days later, the facility says it’s scored $650,000 from 1,400 donors (including one $200k matching gift)
