AIDS Resource provides a variety of services to clients living with HIV. Our case managers help clients navigate the healthcare system, gain access to insurance, and engage in other support services.
We take a holistic approach and assess individual needs to create a tailored service model.
Case Management Program
Our case management program provides one-one-one education and services that connect clients to medical and social services based on their needs to promote health and well-being. This involves regular contact with a case manager, either in-person or through telehealth, based on your preference. To get started, please call the Williamsport or State College office to schedule a case management intake.
Medical and Dental Assistance
We provide payment for medical and dental services to eligible clients. We partnered with an optometrist to provide free eye exams, and we provide financial assistance with eyeglasses. Case managers can assist with coordinating medical and dental appointments. If you like, we can attend scheduled appointments with you.
Mental Health Services
At AIDS Resource, we believe quality medical and mental health care go together. We help connect clients to mental health professionals of their choice. The agency also assists with financial expenses associated with these services, such as copays and deductibles.
Our Advanced Care program addresses age-related medical conditions and psychosocial issues faced by our clients aged 50 and older. By implementing a comprehensive and age-appropriate approach, our goal is to improve daily function, quality of life, health outcomes, and more.
To facilitate client attendance at medical or social service appointments, AIDS Resource offers various transportation assistance options, including (1) reimbursing clients for mileage, (2) providing bus tickets or tokens, or (3) arranging for staff members to drive clients.
We offer eligibility-based housing assistance programs that help clients with security deposits, rent, or mortgage payments. We also help with emergency financial assistance for housing and utilities.
We understand that nutrition plays a vital role in health, and we are committed to helping our clients access healthy foods. We provide eligible clients with dietician-approved meals or fresh meal kits, which are mailed directly to their homes.
