Program Summary: CAMBA’s Transitional Care Coordination for
People Living with HIV/AIDS (TCC) program links 72 individuals
to housing and primary medical care. Program staff work with
clients to develop coordinated service plans that will ensure that
the clients are connected to a wide range of services, including:
- Access to public benefits and other supportive services
- Accompanying clients to medical and other
appointments to ensure that their medical and
other needs (such as housing) are being met
- Medical/mental health services
- One-on-one health promotion counseling sessions
with each client at least six times, which follow
modules from DOHMH required curricula
- Substance abuse treatment services
Once clients are connected to housing and medical care, program staff will facilitate the transfer of their cases to a Ryan White Care Coordination program, HealthLink or another case management program.
Finally, staff will follow-up with clients after their transfers to ensure that the transitions have been smooth and positive.
