Helping people living with HIV/AIDS and their families
How We Help Those Living with HIV/AIDS
Volunteers of America – Greater New York offers permanent supportive housing for individuals living with AIDS. We offer 52 units of congregate housing for people who require supportive services and 160 units of scattered site housing for those who are able to live independently.
Services we provide include:
Medical, emotional, financial, and chemical addiction counseling are core parts of our programs. Group therapy and bereavement counseling are provided by skilled and compassionate staff who are committed to treating clients with dignity and respect.
Case Management and Advocacy
Case managers develop comprehensive and individualized service plans and act on behalf of residents to ensure that they receive all of the benefits and services for which they are eligible.
Residents are encouraged to participate in recreation by using on-site exercise equipment and a pool table, and attending off-site recreational activities including bowling tournaments, holiday parties, and trips to Broadway plays and other local places of interest.
