Analysis of Integrated HIV Housing and Care Services. 2. Frannie Peabody Center: Maine Integrated HIV/AIDS Housing Plan Project

02/01/2014

FPC, a community-based organization headquartered in Portland, Maine, was formed in 2002 by the merger of two HIV/AIDS service providers. Currently the largest AIDS service organization in the state, FPC provides both prevention services for those at risk of HIV and direct services to HIV-positive individuals and their families. FPC’s four HOPWA grants fund permanent supportive housing services for PLWHA statewide. Though service provision varies somewhat by program, these HIV housing services offer a combination of supports through local community resources, including access to case management, volunteer assistance, life skills education and training, and medical care. FPC was awarded $930,909 for their Maine Integrated HIV/AIDS Housing Plan. The project coordinates with four local housing authorities across the state to integrate HOPWA clients into mainstream HUD housing. The project hopes to promote stable housing and improved health outcomes by providing people with the support and services they need to facilitate their transition to HUD Housing Choice Vouchers. FPC is the only IHHP grantee with a statewide client base.
