CAMBA’s Transitional Care Coordination for People Living with HIV/AIDS Program links individuals to housing and primary medical care. Program staff work with clients to develop coordinated service plans that will ensure they are connected to a wide range of services, including:
- Medical/mental health services
- One-on-one health promotion counseling sessions
- Substance abuse treatment services
- Access to public benefits and other supportive services
- Accompanying and advocating for clients at medical and other appointments such as housing
Once clients are connected to housing and medical care, program staff will facilitate the transfer of their cases to a Ryan White Care Coordination program, HealthLink, or another case management program.Staff follows up with clients after their transfer to ensure that the transitions have been smooth and positive.
