Bilingual Pro Bono Opportunity

LAF is looking for Spanish-speaking volunteers in our Medical Debt Relief Project.

LAF’s Medical Debt Relief Project helps eligible clients prepare the necessary paperwork to request  a waiver of medical debts from hospitals. Financial assistance and charity care are a great way for people of low income to lower their debts without filing bankruptcy.

Volunteers need not be attorneys, but must be detail-oriented and able to communicate effectively with clients.  We are asking for a minimum commitment to the project of three months, 10 hours per week. The schedule is flexible.

The position includes face-to-face and phone interviews with clients and assisting clients with filling out the proper forms. The volunteer will also follow-up with clients to obtain the necessary supporting documentation, and file applications and follow up with the hospitals to ensure that the applications are processed in a timely fashion.

If you are interested and wish you learn more about this opportunity, please email your resume to Federico Guzman at  fguzman@lafchicago.org or 312.347.8364.
