Adult Special Care Center provides education and prevention services, medical care and medical case management. As a part of patient case management, ASCC staff will refer patients to services such as dental, mental health, substance abuse, etc. Through grant funding ASCS is able to provide food (limited monthly stipend), EFA (limited utility assistance), transportation (bus cards, MAPCO gas cards, on-site free parking) and assist patients with receiving their medications.
Also, ASCC staff will work within the community to educate Memphians about HIV/AIDS. Through the work of Early Intervention Specialists, ASCC works to increase the Memphis community’s understanding of HIV/AIDS. Staff attends community health fairs and programs to offer safe sex talks, link individuals who are HIV positive into medical care, provide protection, and distribute literature and brochures.
Assistance is limited per grant year.
