24/7 Residential Program
The PALM (Peace and Love in Mercy) Program – provides intensive residential services to those living with HIV and AIDS who need 24-hour care to improve their quality of life and health outcomes. The PALM program provides a person-centered care model, facilitating a sense of Community through Advocacy and Resolve to Empower (CARE). 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 24/7 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. With our support, residents are on ART Therapy, retained in care, establish health goals and achieve or maintain viral suppression, building the foundation for Positive Connections and community living.
Our Positive Connections program provides case management services to those who transition out of the PALM program or live independently in the broader community. Participants thrive while navigating their pathway to wellness with the support of a network of caring, informed and compassionate people. We believe that you must “Connect to Thrive,” so we offer participants a variety of resources as they continue on their journey to a higher quality of life.
