Overview. The Greater Long Beach Medical Legal Partnership (GLBMLP) is an alliance between The Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles and the Long Beach Children’s Clinic that recognizes that medically vulnerable families may need legal services to be healthy just as much as they need medical care. For example, a young mother who seeks help for recurring headaches and abdominal stress, will not improve if she returns to the abusive home that caused these symptoms in the first place. At the GLBMLP, health care providers work in tandem with legal aid attorneys and social workers to address the underlying social and economic determinants of overall health, particularly in the area of family violence and childhood exposure to violence. Now in it’s third year, the GLBMP has provided free legal services and emotional support to more than 220 vulnerable children and their families, particularly in the area of family violence and childhood exposure violence.
