|Care Coordination - Programs||| Print ||
Through care coordination, PRC provides a variety of programs that help to ensure that people living with HIV or AIDS are receiving the best quality of care.
Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) - PRC provides this assistance program to eligible clients with long term tenant based rental assistance, short term rental assistance, and utility assistance.
Food and Nutrition Program - Implemented in 1996, PRC offers a food and nutrition program that provides low-income persons living with HIV/AIDS with food vouchers from the Community Harvest Food Bank on a monthly basis. PRC also provides a non-perishable food pantry to clients in need of food or hygiene items on monthly basis.
Direct Emergency Financial Assistance (DEFA) - This program helps eligible clients pay for their initial doctor visits, lab fees, and medications until they are eligible for other assistance programs.
Client Emergency Assistance program - Established several years ago, the client emergency fund provides persons living with HIV/AIDS with financial assistance not covered under HOPWA, food and nutrition, and emergency medical assistance.
Residential Facility - PRC owns and operates a nineteen unit residential facility for persons living with HIV/AIDS in downtown Fort Wayne. The residential facility provides one-bedroom apartments and efficiency units, all with full kitchens and private baths. Additionally, the house offers a common living room, dining room, kitchen, weight room, and meeting room.
Support Groups - PRC provides support groups on a monthly basis for persons living with HIV/AIDS.
MAC Food Program - The MAC Food Program is designed for individuals with a low CD4 cell count, an opportunistic infection, an AIDS diagnosis, or for people who may be at risk of wasting. The MAC program is a food delivery program that provides eligible individuals with at least half of the monthly calorie requirements to maintain or gain weight.
Special Population Support Program (SPSP) - This program is available to anyone who is HIV + (you do not have to be a client of PRC) and is interested in exploring options to reduce or cease their substance use/abuse.
