Chicago LGBT Clinic Overhauls Board


Chicago's Howard Brown Health Center, a clinic serving a primarily LGBT clientele, will make major changes to its board of directors in the wake of a financial crisis.

The clinic's executive committee and four other board members will resign effective December 31, according to a Howard Brown press release posted online Monday byWindy City Times.The remaining board members, representing about half of the total, will recruit and seat new members, with the goal of having a completely new board in place by July 1, the start of the new fiscal year.

The center has experienced a cash shortfall related to the mishandling of grant funds by its previous management team. This fall it launched a campaign to raise $500,000 in donations in 50 days; it has reached 73% of that goal to date.

"Throughout the difficult past year, the board's sole interest has been to stabilize the organization, make necessary changes and take appropriate actions in response to the challenges facing the organization," outgoing board chair Mark Andrews said in the release. According to Andrews and other Howard Brown leaders, the board overhaul is intended to increase confidence in and community ties to the center, they called for anyone interested in serving on the board to contact the clinic.
