Previously Out of Care?

Wait a minute!  Don’t go.  If you are HIV positive, and have not accessed a medical provider or HIV related laboratory screenings, I urge you to just get through this paragraph.  Your health should be a non-negotiable, and access to care is available to you, particularly if you haven’t engaged in some time.  Please don’t let another day pass, and you not get in touch with a care provider<<LEARN MORE>>

Re-entering the Community?

Getting back into the community from prior incarceration comes with a boatload of responsibilities.  Keeping Parole & Probation off your back, re-engaging with your family, finding a place to live, or focusing on staying away of the challenges from long ago, are all very relevant factors in your success.  As an HIV positive individual, keep your health in mind, may become a challenge. By partnering with your Case Manager, they can often help you develop a comprehensive plan, that allows you to effectively address the variety of things that come your way.  <<LEARN MORE>>
