Housing Services and Health Management Programs for PLWH
Our organization not only offers health management programs for people with HIV, but we also provide housing support services that are designed to reduce or prevent their homelessness. The goal of this program is to increase the availability of decent, safe, and affordable housing for low-income persons living with HIV (PLWH).
Care coordination is our organization’s comprehensive and specialized case management program. It connects individuals living with HIV to the resources they need to get optimal health and well-being.
Case management can be critical in the effort to live well with HIV. At FAP, our friendly, diverse professional staff will work with you to determine what your needs are and find the best way to help you. Your case manager will link you to important support services such as:

Psychosocial Case Management
Good mental health and social well-being will help you live your life to the fullest and is essential to successfully treating HIV. For this reason, our psychosocial support services at FAP include the delivery of education and support to individuals, families, aging population, and monolingual Spanish-speaking clients.
Will be available to you on an ongoing basis, continually monitoring your needs and coordinating services without charging you any fees. If you or someone you know is living with HIV, please reach out to our dedicated case management teams so we can help you to recover.

FAP’s Whole Person Mental Wellness Program covers the full range of your mental and emotional well-being in a comprehensive, caring, and sensitive manner. Our services also address the needs of clients at multiple stages of readiness for treatment.
We’ll listen, and we’ll work together to develop a plan that fits your life.

Health Management Programs That Help You in Your Journey
An HIV diagnosis can worsen the severity of depression and anxiety symptoms. And since group therapy is proven to be a powerful treatment strategy, newly diagnosed clients experience positive reinforcement and reduced isolation when they interact with others coping successfully with HIV and living productive lives.
Mental health treatment has been demonstrated to increase HIV treatment adherence, improve health outcomes, and reduce viral transmission. We know this journey can be long and winding, but we will be there with you every step of the way. We are in this together.
What Is VAN-CONNECT?
VAN-CONNECT is a transportation program that provides “Curb-to-Curb” assisted transportation to seniors and individuals with disabilities. These can be people who cannot easily use other transportation services in the High Desert Region, San Bernardino, and other neighboring cities.
Food and Nutrition Assistance
At FAP, we see that clients who learn more about nutritious food consumption show improvement—sometimes drastic—in their disease management journey. This can influence additional aspects of their lives, including management of anxiety, depression, stress, and difficult life situations.
Additionally, PLWH whose basic nutritional needs are met are better equipped to adhere to HIV treatment regimens. This leads to improving health outcomes and overall well-being.
