Helping People Living With HIV/ AIDS and Their Families

How We Help Those Living with HIV/AIDS

Volunteers of America – Greater New York offers supportive, permanent housing for individuals living with AIDS. We offer 72 units of congregate housing for people who require supportive services and 185 units of scattered site housing for those who are able to live independently.

Services we provide include:

Counseling

Medical, emotional, financial, and chemical addiction counseling are core parts of our programs. Group therapy and bereavement counseling are provided by skilled and compassionate Volunteers of America staff who are always mindful of 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.

Recreation

Our programs have an extensive recreation component that includes on-site exercise equipment and pool table and off-site recreational activities including bowling tournaments, holiday parties, and trips to Broadway plays and other local places of interest.
