Linkage to Care
Our Linkage to Care Specialists are able to assist in linking individuals living with HIV/AIDS to HIV medical care, by helping individuals overcome barriers that may prevent them from sustaining the medical care and treatment that they need. Our specialists help make accessing care as easy and efficient as possible so that clients can achieve a better quality of life.

Patient Navigation

Our patient navigators serve as your guide to our health care system.  Our patient navigators can provide you with consultations and health information, assess your eligibility for public health coverage and other benefits programs, assist you with the application process, schedule appointments with your providers, obtain translation and interpretation services, help plan next steps, and follow up with pending application statuses and/or upcoming appointments.

Behavioral Health Services

Living with HIV/AIDS can be difficult. Our trained and licensed mental health professionals provide short-term or sustained therapeutic interventions if you experience acute and/or ongoing mental health disorders.

Housing Case Management

Our housing case managers work through Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) to assist you with housing programs such as: Short Term Rent, Mortgage, and Utilities (STRMU), Permanent Housing Placement (PHP), and Section 8. We can also help with referrals for emergency shelters, food pantries, and other community resources.
