Our HIV Programs offer nonjudgmental, harm-reduction based services that promote robust engagement by clients in their own healthcare. Our services allow individuals to connect with one another and overcome barriers to access much-needed resources, including medical and mental health care, housing support, food and nutrition, and counseling.
Specifically, our continuum of services are designed to provide:
- Emotional and practical support through 1-on-1 staff engagement, peer support groups, individual health counseling, and Shanti Peer Support Volunteers.
- Client Advocacy to assist navigation through the health care system.
- Knowledge about HIV/HCV disease and treatment, and how to enhance health outcomes and increase quality of life, based on the latest medical research and health information.
