For over two decades, the Osborne Association’s Wellness and Prevention Services (originally Community-based Prevention Services) has provided HIV services to those at risk of infectious disease and individuals living with HIV/AIDS. Created in 2001 as a response to the HIV epidemic, the program serves over 300 individuals annually and is located at Osborne’s Bronx site, an area with one of the highest incidence rates of HIV in New York City.
Through client-centered interventions, individuals increase their awareness and knowledge of disease management, risk behaviors, and healthy lifestyles. Structured group and individual activities assist participants in developing skills to avoid high risk behaviors and develop safer sex practices.
Osborne’s Housing Placement and Assistance (HPA) services provide independent, supportive and transitional housing placement. HPA issues Home Start-Up Kits and Rental Assistance and offers housing retention activities for participants for 12 months.
Target Groups(By Need):AIDS / HIV
