Case management is a client-centered service that links clients with medically appropriate levels of health care and support services. A social worker, nurse or human services worker provides access to a continuity of care, ongoing assessment of the clients’ needs, and personal support systems to ensure that clients remain in care.
Persons who think they need case management can call us for an intake at 410-887-2437. A brief phone interview begins the process. Proof of being HIV positive, proof of income and proof of residency are required.
