Minority AIDS Project’s approach to Care and Prevention is based on a unique Model of Early Intervention through the use of a Comprehensive and Culturally Relevant Continuum of Care that offers a broad range of services in response to the social, economic and medical challenges facing our community.
At least 90% of MAP’s clients have marginal economic situations with existing problems of unemployment, homelessness, and social isolation intensified by an HIV positive or AIDS diagnosis. Generally clients have multiple needs and require help negotiating the large, bureaucratic government systems on which they must rely for benefits and medical care.
Through our unique continuum of care, new clients complete a comprehensive intake interview and are assessed to develop an individual service plan. After intake, overall care and services are coordinated to ensure full and appropriate assistance. Clients are also helped in obtaining health care benefits.
Quality of life support is offered through the utilization of Section 8 Housing Vouchers, Food, Clothing, and admissions to drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities.
Clients, who are homebound, require comprehensive medical case management. Non-medical personal care by Certified Care Workers and/or homemaker services is provided. A financial status evaluation as well as a warm and supportive physical, psychological, and social environment is established. Services are provided by or under the supervision of our Registered Nurses.
Transitional Case Management
Services are provided for people living with HIV/AIDS who are incarcerated and/or about to be released from the Los Angeles County Jail system. Case managers assess the client’s physical, psychosocial, environmental and financial needs and facilitate the client’s access to appropriate sources of health care, financial assistance, mental health care, and other supportive services. Follow-up services, referrals and interventions are continued on behalf of the client, and three six, and nine-month follow-ups will ascertain whether services are accessed and meet the client’s needs.
If you need services or have any question regarding case management feel free to call at 323 936-4949.
