Ever increasing need for services and programs prompted the board to vote unanimously in 1995 to pursue new building options, and a year-long capital campaign was launched to erect what is now Howard Brown’s Sheridan Road location. Howard Brown Health was the first gay and lesbian organization in the Midwest to complete a capital campaign, resulting in a $3.5 million state-of-the-art facility with the first in-clinic, full-service Walgreens with pharmacists specializing in HIV/AIDS.

Then, Mayor Richard M. Daley attended the groundbreaking ceremony in 1996 and October 4, 1997 was the opening day at Howard Brown Health’s new facility at 4025 N. Sheridan Road.
