Michigan Advocates Exchange to close

By |2016-04-09T09:00:00-04:00April 9th, 2016|Uncategorized|

YPSILANTI – Michigan Advocates Exchange, Inc. which has provided HIV-related legal advocacy and legal training services since 2000, will close Sept. 30, according to Mary Cavanaugh Byers, Chair of the Board of Trustees.
MAX’s closing is due to increasing budgetary and salary requirements needed to continue outreach, education and advocacy for MAX’s clients, which to date have numbered over 750.
“After several weeks of research, discussion, and re-budgeting, the MAX Board has determined that, under the circumstances, we are unable to promise the same quality and quantity of HIV-specific legal services,” said Byers.
“The Board developed several alternative plans, but after consultation with the state Department of Community Health we decided to close the agency at the conclusion of the current state contract. MAX clients may be assured that each will receive the assistance that he or she needs, and that MAX has agreed to provide.”
