Family Service was the first agency in Bucks County to offer case management services to people who were HIV positive or living with AIDS during the height of the epidemic in the 1980s. Since then our program has grown and changed along with the needs of people living with HIV.
The HIV/AIDS Program (HAP) is made up of several inter-related programs. We serve men, women, seniors, young adults, and people of all ethnic and cultural backgrounds regardless of income.
Two basic premises guide what we do: everyone should know their status; and, if HIV positive, the sooner you are connected to medical care, the better your chances of living a longer and healthier life. HAP strives to offer a continuum of care by connecting people to medical care, mental health services, supportive services and groups.
Clients in the HAP Program may be eligible for:
- Emergency financial assistance
- Food & nutrition assistance
Programs in the HIV/AIDS Program include:
There is no fee for services. Anyone in Philadelphia, Bucks, Montgomery, Chester and Delaware Counties in PA, and Southern NJ is eligible for services. For more information contact: 215-757-6916 ext. 231
Medical Case Management
Family Service is the only agency which offers HIV/AIDS medical case management services in Bucks County. Medical Case Managers provide a continuum of care by connecting people to medical care, prevention education, mental health treatment and psychiatric care, transportation, nutrition information, and emergency financial assistance. Connection to care, especially to Infectious Disease Specialists, is critical in improving the quality of life for a person who is positive.
Medical Case Managers work closely with clients to make sure they are adhering to treatment and seeing doctors for medical care. Medical Case Managers assist clients with transportation in getting to doctor’s appointments.
Medical Case Management services are free.
