This workshop is for medical-legal partnerships (MLPs) at all stages of development, focusing on planning, implementation and sustainability of MLPs in Health Care for the Homeless health centers. Participants will hear from national MLP experts who can reinforce the centrality of healthcare engagement and integration as the key to MLP success. Participants will use the National Center for Medical-Legal Partnership's resources to identify steps to plan a new MLP or expand an existing MLP. Discussion focuses on how the MLP approach identifies legal needs directly associated with health issues with specific attention given to integrating MLP into the health setting.
