2016 Annual Report

Dear friends,


Thank you for your support of Howard Brown Health’s work to reduce

health disparities for LGBTQ people.  When we talk about healthcare

equity for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people, what we’re

fundamentally addressing is access: access to providers and services that

are uniquely suited to our patients; staff that understand where a patient is

coming from and who will work with them to plan for their health. At Howard Brown,

2016 was dedicated to increasing access to our innovative model of healthcare by focusing on

affordability, service integration, and proximity.


By modifying our sliding-scale fee, Howard Brown is making visits to our clinics easier for people

concerned about their budget. We see everyone, regardless of their ability to pay, and with our lowest nominal fee now just $5, seeing a provider is more accessible than ever.


                               In 2016, we published our first Community Impact Report, and when we examined our service model

                               and patient outcomes documented in it, we saw a pattern: our patients fare better when we holistically

                               address the health of their minds, bodies, and souls.

                               The data are clear: our patient-centered medical home – an integrated approach to wellness, offering

                               on-site behavioral health and social services, in addition to affirming primary care services and

                               community intervention and prevention strategies – results in vital and sometimes life-saving impact on LGBTQ health in Chicago.


Perhaps most importantly, Howard Brown Health has expanded its footprint in the Windy City. This year,

we embarked on an ambitious plan: Out in the Neighborhoods ensures LGBTQ people across Chicago

have access to affirming, non-judgmental, and high-quality health and wellness services. In addition

to our flagship clinic in Uptown, we have added new clinics in Rogers Park, Englewood,

and Hyde Park and added capacity to our clinic in Lakeview.  In 2017, we are moving

Broadway Youth Center to a dedicated home in Buena Park that allows for increased services

and hours.  This ambitious growth brings us closer to wherever our patients live, embedded in

more communities that need a place that is safe, accepting, and proactive about their health.


Thank you for supporting Howard Brown, our doors are open to you, wherever you may live, and

wherever you are in your healthcare goals.

Howard Brown Health Clark is open at full capacity.

A result of Howard Brown’s designation as a

Federally Qualified Health Center, the clinic opened in 2015

offering limited services until December 2016. The

15,000-square-foot facility includes 12 exam rooms,

counseling rooms and space for other services. Howard Brown shares the building with Gerber/Hart Library and Archives, which offers visitors and range of literary, cultural and historical preservation programming. Together the two organizations are creating a uniquely affirming destination for the LGBTQ community.

                         We bolstered our commitment to treat hepatitis C. We

                         bolstered our commitment to treat hepatitis C. In 2016,

                         Howard Brown Health streamlined the process to support

                         screening, diagnoses, health education, monitoring, insurance

                         navigation, and treatment for people living with hepatitis C (HCV).

                         After several months of planning, we launched a new process to triage care for those most in need of treatment. In 2016, we hired a care coordinator who’s entirely devoted to the HCV project, allowing us to have better prioritization and triaging of patients with the highest need for medical treatment, resulting in 34 people being cured between July and March. In addition, we successfully enrolled 17 patients with hepatitis C eligible for treatment coverage through the AIDS Drug Assistance Program.

Walk-in visits increased exponentially. In 2016, our Sexual Health Walk-in Clinic experienced a 40% increase in visitors. This increase in patients has a broad impact on public health in Chicago and gives us the opportunity to see patients on their schedule.


We offer sterile syringe access to our transgender and gender non-conforming clients. Howard Brown partnered with the Chicago Recovery Alliance to launch the Safe Harbor Incorporating Needle Exchange (SHINE) program in our After Hours clinic for trans and gender non-conforming (TGNC) people. SHINE was developed as a harm reduction initiative and will dramatically increase clean needle access for TGNC people. SHINE is unique as a trans-affirmative program within a Federally Qualified Health Center.


Young people are supported in their health goals. In 2016, Howard Brown increased the number of youth ages 8-16 who received psychotherapy and the number of families who received support to initiate hormone therapy for TGNC youth under 18.


Our ongoing research studies provide vital information to pave the way for innovation in LGBTQ health. Dozens of studies involve participants from all over the city and region to improve access to PrEP, assess the needs of transgender women of color, and advance HIV prevention, substance use treatment, and healthcare communication strategies, among other areas of investigation.

Our busiest and most established clinic in Uptown is the hub of our behavioral health and social services, and boasts the highest number of patients per year for Howard Brown.

Howard Brown initiated the first LGBTQ-specific sexual assault response program in the nation. The program addresses the unique needs, identities, and lived experiences of our community’s sexual assault survivors from a holistic and integrative perspective. The new program, called in.power*, offers crisis intervention, short-term case management, support groups for youth and adults, sexually transmitted infections screening/treatment, and prevention services for people who have endured sexual assault. The program will incorporate legislative outreach to advocate for laws that streamline medical responses to sexual assault.

More space for patient care. Completion of the expansion project at Howard Brown Health Halsted allows us to accommodate more patients and reduce appointment wait times. The clinic now includes a total of 10 exam rooms. The expansion was completed with no interruption to patient care.


We integrate mental health into the medical visit as part of our commitment to offer patients comprehensive primary care. This year, our behavioral health team has significantly deepened the integrated care Howard Brown offers medical patients. Behavioral Health Consultants (BHCs) are now embedded in primary care teams to offer screening, brief and interventions and referrals to patients during their medical visit, with plans to expand the team of BHCs in 2017.

Our Englewood clinic opened in May 2016, helping to fill a gap for affirming and LGBTQ-friendly health and wellness services on the South Side of Chicago.

Our Englewood clinic is open for business. Howard Brown Health 63rd St., solidified its place in the neighborhood in August with its festive open house. Attended by hundreds of community members and supporters, the event introduced Howard Brown to its new Englewood neighbors.


Our AIDS United outreach team is one of three in the nation. With financial support from AIDS United, Howard Brown Health 63rd St., provides a peer-based program to help HIV-positive women of color engage or re-engage in clinical care and services.  As one of only three U.S. sites selected for the federal program, we are deeply honored to help AIDS United define a successful model of care appropriate for women of color who are disproportionately affected by HIV/AIDS.


No More Shame and Blame. In October, Howard Brown Health hosted government officials including Dr. Deborah Birx, Ambassador-at-Large for Global AIDS Efforts, Congresswoman Robin Kelly, and Congressman Mike Quigley, for a free event and discussion on HIV stigma.

The Brown Elephant experience. At the Andersonville Brown Elephant, we completed a renovation of the interior and added a new stage for displays and events. The stage pays homage to the building’s turn-of-the-century heyday as a grand movie theater. With historical molding and architectural details, the resale floor doubles as Howard Brown’s “living room” for community events, educational seminars, and agency-wide gatherings, including Howard Brown’s annual meeting.

Through various events in 2016, Howard Brown engaged its supporters and strengthened the fabric of our community citywide.

The Big Orange Ball has quickly become a signature event for Howard Brown Health, with attendees making the most out of the opportunity to dress up for a good cause. 2016’s event featured RuPaul’s Drag Race season eight winner, Bob The Drag Queen as the host.


Garden of Eve, Howard Brown’s spring fundraising gala for LBQ women, trans people, and allies is always the event of the season. In 2016, the event featured an aerialist, with music provided by Chicago’s hottest DJs from Slo ‘Mo.


The ribbon-cutting event commemorating the completion of the construction of our Rogers Park clinic featured remarks by U.S. Senator Dick Durbin and Congresswoman Jan Shakowsky, along with other local officials, community members and staff.


Our 2016 Annual Meeting, held at our Brown Elephant store in Andersonville, celebrated the completion of the store’s renovation, and was an opportunity to honor Howard Brown staff and community partners.


Opening our clinic in Englewood was a milestone for Howard Brown Health in 2016. The ribbon-cutting event was attended by over 200 supporters including 20th Ward Alderman Willie B. Cochran; Illinois State Senator Jacquline Y. Collins, 16th District;  Radio Talk Show Host Cliff Kelley from WVON 1690 AM; Radio Host Joe Soto V-103 FM/ Clear Channel; and Grammy Award nominated DJSteve "Silk" Hurley. By bringing affirming, quality healthcare to the south side of Chicago, more people will gain access to Howard Brown’s full-spectrum of services.
