HIV-Early Intervention Services

The Early Intervention Services Program connects people living with HIV/AIDS to medical care. The Ryan White Part C grant provides funding for those who do not have health insurance, have insufficient insurance, or limited financial resources. Other services include: HIV/AIDS counseling, risk reduction counseling, case management, and patient education. We assist with referrals to services such as dental, nutrition, and mental health as well as referrals to medication assistance program, food programs, support groups and much more.

HIV/AIDS is a disease process that is as unique as the persons living with it. It can be challenging, complicated and restrictive for the patient. If you or a family member is living with HIV or AIDS, we can work together to find the tools and resources to assist you with your day-to-day living as well as provide up-to-date medical treatment and education.
In working with community groups and individuals, we focus on complete health: physical, emotional, social, financial, and legal.

The EIS Program also provides rapid HIV testing and PrEP and PEP navigation services. PrEP, or pre-exposure prophylaxis, is a daily pill to help keep you HIV-negative. When taken as prescribed, PrEP is highly effective. PrEP is safe and generally well tolerated. Most insurance plans (public and private) cover PrEP. PEP, or post-exposure prophylaxis, is a combination of medications you can take AFTER a possible exposure to HIV if you are not on PrEP or have missed taking it as prescribed. PEP is most effective the sooner it’s started, and must be started within 72 hours of the exposure. PEP is taken daily for 28 days. (Reference: pleaseprepme.org)
