AHF Sues L.A. Housing Dept. to Prevent Closure of AIDS Site

Former AIDS Hospice Now Serves as HIV/AIDS Care Hub

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) announced its filing of a lawsuit against the City of Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Housing Department (LAHD) for breach of contract and for a "judicial determination" regarding the validity of a years-old loan agreement between LAHD and AHF, the US' largest non-profit HIV/AIDS healthcare, research, prevention and education provider.

LAHD, however, is insisting on what AHF believes are outdated, inequitable and unenforceable hospice restrictions.

This lawsuit followed a threat by City officials to initiate foreclose proceedings on the facility if AHF does not immediately repay the $1.1 million loan plus interest. Under the terms of the 40-year loan, the money is not fully payable until after the year 2030.

"Through its actions, the Los Angeles Housing Department ap
