FARTHER OUTREACH

The goal of the program is to conduct outreach activity, provide advocacy to social services, and plan events that impact the community-at-large and lead individuals and their families on the path of self-sufficiency through empowerment. The impact of our outreach services extent to individuals and their families throughout Palm Beach County, however, many are concentrated primarily in Boynton Beach, Delray Beach, Lantana, and Lake Worth.   For more details on Farther Outreach, please click here 

SUPPORTIVE HOUSING
 

The supportive housing program houses both men and women that are homeless or facing homelessness. Our 12-bed men's campus and our 8-bed women's campus are located in Boynton Beach. We are careful to ensure the safety of our residents by only accepting incoming residents that have a COVID-19 negative status.  The need for this type of transitional housing is a high priority. This year we have received over 342 calls from individuals and other agencies for our services.  Since the program started in 2017, we have housed 36 clients, of which 14 have successfully developed sufficient life skills and training to successfully move into permanent housing, and 8 have had to be transferred to a higher level of care within the ALF community. 

Individuals interested in being considered for housing should complete our Pre-Housing Application and return it to the office to arrange an appointment.

HIV/AIDS EDUCATION AND RESOURCES
 

The BB Faith Based CDC received a grant in January, 2021 from the Florida Office of Minority Health and Health Equity to provide advocacy and outreach over the next 2 years using social media platforms such as Chevy D TV on YouTube.com and Where My Sistas At? to promote Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE), the use of prophylaxis (PrEP) to prevent transmission of HIV,  encourage early diagnosis, and rapid testing.

 

During the last eight months, we have held one event on Chevy D TV, held virtual educational conversations with 453 individual, handed out 306 program publicity materials, 364 educational materials, and provided face-to-face education to 24  individuals.

Although Black/African Americans represent almost 13 percent of the U.S. population, they account for 42.1 percent of HIV infection cases in 2019. 

In December 2019, President Biden announced the goal to end the HIV epidemic in the United States within 10 years. As a result, Health and Human Services launched the Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE):  Plan for America initiative, which will leverage data and tools, to reduce new HIV infections in the US by 75% in five years ad by 90% by 2030. These efforts focus on four key strategies that together can end the HIV epidemic in the US. 

1. Diagnose all people living with HIV as early as possible after transmission.

2. Treat HIV rapidly and effectively to achieve sustained viral suppression.

3. Prevent HIV Transmission among people at highest risk with pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), syringe servicing programs (SSPs) and prevention education.

4. Respond rapidly to detect and respond to HIV outbreaks to get prevention and treatment services to those who need them.
