Services We Provide:
Each year CAP provides food, housing, case management, transportation assistance, linkage to medical care, substance abuse treatment, mental health counseling, and other essential services to people living with HIV/AIDS and their families. CAP focuses its efforts on identifying and linking people living with HIV/AIDS to medical care.
Medical case managers help individuals enroll in health insurance programs, including Medicaid/Medicare, and Palm Beach County Health Care District so that they can see a doctor regularly. Further, the medical case managers help individuals access medications through various pharmacy and drug assistance programs. Evidence has shown that when people living with HIV are enrolled in medical care and regularly take their prescribed medications, they not only have better health outcomes, but they are also less likely to transmit HIV to other individuals.
CAP also offers HIV prevention and testing services reaching more than 10,000 people each year, with an emphasis on raising awareness about HIV and helping people learn their HIV status.
The agency’s innovative “Learn. Know. Connect.” program helps people learn about HIV, know their HIV status through testing, and connect to care as appropriate. CAP established a toll-free phone number that works throughout the County that any resident can call to schedule a free, confidential rapid HIV antibody test. The test takes about ½ hour and is painless. The toll-free number is 888-41-RAPID or (888)417-2743.
