Early intervention services that connect our HIV+ clients to medical, mental health, substance-use providers and other related healthcare providers. EIS services also reduce barriers to care such as transportation and navigating healthcare systems by working with our partners. We provide brief counseling to improve self-advocacy and provider-patient communication skills. We supplemental nutrition through our food pantry. as well as offer housing assistance through referrals. In 2021 weare working on opening a new Orange County Residence to provide housing for PLWAIDS that need more intensive health monitoring and support.
The Alliance has a strong and committed base of faith-based donors. Without their support we would have run out of food within a month of the COVID-19 shut down. We also gained new faith partners that helped us to engage communities that we had not previously worked with. Over the past year, our faith partners provided enough food and household supplies to sustain our pantry, and drastically reduced our costs for buying and transporting bulk food and household goods from the local foodbanks. Our dedication and community presence caught the eye of two faith/civic minded groups who donated brand new commercial refrigerators and freezers, that were valued at 10K per pair.
