Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

1. To identify people who are HIV+ and unaware of their HIV-status through testing and screening.
2. To engage people who are HIV+ in medical care and maintain their engagement through medical case management and supportive services.
3. To provide HIV-related (specialty) medical care to people affected by HIV and people who are at risk of HIV infection.
4. To prevent homelessness among HIV+ community in Upstate, SC.

1. Provide free HIV/STD/STI testing and screening to CDC identified "at risk" or target communities.
2. Provide linkage-to-care services to engage newly diagnosed individuals into medical care.
3. Provide a comprehensive menu of supportive services to keep HIV+ clients engaged in HIV and other medical treatment and medications.
4. Provide assistance with Short-term Rend, Mortgage and Utilities.
5. Provide a supportive housing for clients who are at-risk of homelessness.
6. Provide addictions counseling/therapy for HIV+ clients with addiction issues.

We have a staff of medical case managers, who are trained to provide supportive assistance to people living with HIV. In addition to our own resources, our medical case managers refer our clients to other community resources to ensure they have the necessary support. We have a proficient staff of phlebotomists, who provide free HIV/STD/STI testing and screening. These folks provide testing services as well as risk-reduction education and counseling to help folks at risk of HIV/STD/STI infection protect themselves and others. We have a 10-bed residents facility for HIV+ clients who need supportive/transition housing. This facility is staffed 24/7. Bedrooms are private; baths, living and dining rooms are communal. Three meals are provided daily. We provide HIV-related medical care for people living with HIV. This includes lab services. We have offices in Greenville and Anderson, South Carolina. Our Greenville clinic includes a pharmacy, where our clients can have their prescriptions filled.

We have over 1,400 HIV+ clients actively enrolled in our medical case management program. We test over 1,200 individuals for HIV/STI/STD annually and maintain a "positivity" rate greater than the CDC's standard 1% rate. Our resident facility has an average occupancy rate of 75%. Our current viral suppression rate among our HIV+ patient population is 87%. The national rate is 51%.

We have expanded our clinical services to include primary care for our HIV+ clients, those at risk of HIV infection, and the general public, focusing on the LGBTQ community. The expansion took place in both clinic locations: Anderson and Greenville, SC.
