Promising Practices: Informational Outreach to The HIV/AIDS Population On SSI/SSDI Benefits and Work
MetadataShow full item record
HIV / AIDS crosses all borders, rich and poor, black and white and youth and seniors alike. Additionally, individuals with HIV/AIDS are told not to work as they may lose their benefits, should a continuing disability review be conducted. Perseverance, building trust and investing many hours of staff time has brought a level of comfort to allow Barrier Free Living in New York City to successfully reach out to the HIV/AIDS population. With the successful outreach efforts enumerated below, Barrier Free Living has seen dramatic increases in the numbers of clients with HIV/AIDS served by the BPA&O program. Amazingly, like in the Latino population, the community as a whole did not know of the agencies’ existence before the outreach efforts.
