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.
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.
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.
