The PALM (Peace and Love in Mercy) Program provides housing and supportive services to those living with HIV and AIDS. The PALM program provides a person-centered model that helps individuals along the HIV Continuum. With an emphasis on dignity, the PALM Program provides a discrimination and stigma-free environment where residents can prioritize themselves and their health. The primary focus of the residential program is to establish care with a team of physicians and implement an individualized care plan with the support of a dedicated team of trained professionals and volunteers to that you can reintegrate into the community as quickly as possible. With our support, residents are on ART Therapy, retained in care, setting health goals, achieving or maintaining viral suppression, and building the foundation for Positive Connections and community living.
