FSW has been providing services to persons with HIV since 1993. Our programs work to achieve the mission of improved health outcomes for persons living with the virus. Medical Case Management, Mental Health, Living Together and Camp Viva are collectively referred to as the Partnership For Care (PFC) programs, specifically designed for families and individuals infected with or by with HIV/AIDS.
As of 2012, 3,690 people in Westchester County were living with an HIV infection diagnosis, with the largest numbers being in urban areas affecting men and women of color. Each of our HIV programs requires that clients earn no more than 435% above the FPL per year to be eligible, although the majority of persons we work with live on substantially less. Most of our clients are on Medicaid and all services are free.
Our critical success factors include:
- Recruiting and Retaining Qualified, Committed Personnel
- Maintaining Fiscal Stability
- Providing Quality Services Delivery
- Promoting Organizational Effectiveness
- Responding to the Emergent Needs of our Clients
FSW staff is committed to the NYS Governors plan to end the AIDS epidemic by 2020. To achieve this goal, we work in partnership with other medical and community providers in the tri-county and surrounding areas.
