What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Client Services

AAC's core client services programming is based on Learning Educating and Advocating with Peers (LEAP), a nationally recognized model for connecting economically and socially marginalized persons living with HIV/AIDS to high quality supportive services and health care. The result is a continuum of care designed to integrate client advocacy, mental health, legal, and peer support into one team to provide effective, culturally competent services. AAC's client services specifically targets individuals who are newly diagnosed, out of care, sub-optimally engaged in care, and/or at risk of falling out of care. This includes clients with unaddressed mental health issues, active substance use, housing instability, lack of workforce readiness, and/or engagement in risky sexual behaviors. The goal of the program is to form trusting relationships with this population to help link and retain them in care and services that will improve their health and self-sufficiency outcomes.

Population(s) Served

AAC operates an array of prevention programs that target specific populations at highest risk of HIV, hepatitis C, and sexually-transmitted infections. AAC's prevention programming is based on the integration of peer support, client advocacy, and mental health services. Programs increase education; promote and reinforce risk reduction practices; build cultures of prevention; screen individuals for infection; connect newly diagnosed individuals with additional support services; and provide ongoing support to increase self-efficacy of clients both living with and at high risk of infection. AAC's model demonstrates that care is prevention. Programs include Youth on Fire for homeless and street-involved youth and young adults; the MALE Center for men who have sex with men; the Needle Exchange for injection drug users; TransCEND for transgender women (male-to-female); the HIV Health Library, HIV and hepatitis C hotlines; and two educational websites.
