Serves HIV positive youth between the ages of 18-25, who need extra attention and medical treatment. Inside the program's 12 residence building, youth who require special assistance in their everyday lives find transitional or permanent housing supplemented with a spectrum of health care and social services. The treatment philosophy promotes strong peer support, structured activities, on-site supervision, counseling and medical services in a relaxed setting. On the first floor of the 3-story facility an HIV Specialty Clinic provides primary health care. Counselors also assess residents for mental health or substance abuse treatment issues and provide psychiatric care as needed.
