  • This picture book depiction of medical-legal partnerships in action demonstrates how medical-legal partnerships and legal aid can transform the lives of families in need.

  • The story focuses on the plight of a small girl suffering from asthma because of a landlord's neglected, mold-ridden apartment. Torn between being evicted and the heath of their daughter, the family is connected with a legal representative by the doctor who cares for the child.

  • This story provides a useful teaching tool for families, hospital administrators, doctors, family lawyers, and anyone who can promote or benefit from medical-legal partnerships.
