  • Medical Clinic

    Outreach Community Care Network has expanded its medical clinic and will be providing primary care services for HIV-positive persons.

    Walk-ins are available. Call 386-255-5569, extension 234 to make an appointment.

     

  • Community Education

    With the goals of preventing the spread of HIV and removing the stigma associated with being HIV positive, the Education Department at Outreach Community Care Network conducts classes, presentations, seminars, and workshops for schools, businesses, churches, civic, and social groups. Educational topics include AIDS Awareness, Prevention Education, and AIDS in the Workplace. Presentations are tailored to meet each group's needs and demographics.

  • HIV Testing and Counseling

    Your doctor or clinic can test you -- but many people prefer to be tested anonymously or confidentially.

     

    At a confidential testing site, you must give your name, and it is kept on record. The record is not open to the public, but it does exist.

    At an anonymous site, you do not have to give your name, but you provide some other information (such as your birth date) which you can use to obtain the results.

     

    Outreach provides both confidential and anonymous counseling and testing. Our HIV counselors will discuss with you your behaviors which may put you at risk for HIV infection, and help you make better choices about how to avoid becoming exposed to HIV (if you are negative) or how to avoid infecting others (if you are positive).

     

  • Emergency Financial Assistance

    Based on the availability of funds from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Outreach has limited financial assistance available for eligible, qualified individuals. Depending on the various program requirements, financial assistance may include food, housing and utilities. You must fit eligibility requirements to receive assistance.

     

    FEMA funds are available to all who qualify for temporary housing, utility assistance, food and shelter. Each emergency need has differing requirements for eligibility.

     

  • Peer Advocates

    Outreach Community Care Network now has four (4) Peer Advocates available to assist individuals and families in gaining increased access to the health care system and resources available to them.

  • Individual and Group Counseling

    Counseling is available for individuals and families to help in dealing with the issues surrounding having (or being affected by) HIV or AIDS. Please contact the Director of Case Management at (386) 255-5569, Ext. 235 for an appointment or for more information.

     

    Our Advocate Office staff and volunteers also provide for more informal Support Groups for HIV+ individuals. Please contact the Advocate Office at (386) 255-5569, Ext. 224.
