Funded Interventions:

Counseling, Testing and Referral Services (CTR):  CTR funding calls for an individual level intervention which will ensure that HIV infected persons and persons at increased risk for HIV have access to HIV testing to promote early knowledge of their HIV status.

Comprehensive Risk Counseling and Services (CRCS): The CRCS program will provide intensive, individualized, client-centered counseling for adopting and maintaining HIV risk-reduction behaviors for HIV+ individuals who continue high-risk behaviors, discordant couples, and HIV- individuals that engage in high-risk behaviors.

Special Populations Support Program (SPSP):   The program is designed to cover two complementary services: disease prevention and supportive care. The Special Populations Support Program strives to minimize the negative impact of chemical dependency on the health of persons at risk of HIV, or those already living with HIV, in a compassionate and non-judgmental environment, cost-free to the client.
