AIDS Walk 2011

Posted on 5/03/2011 by The Bridge

The Bridge team will be participating in the AIDS Walk 2011 on May 15th. Our team will be meeting at 9am on 72nd street and Central Park West to start the walk. Please join us in walking or sponsor our team by contacting Katherine Canto at t:212-663-3000 ext. 424 e:, or Patricia Edwards at t:212-234-9746.

The Bridge offers Emergency and Transitional Housing for People with AIDS. Our 20-bed emergency/transitional residence for people with AIDS is funded through a contract with Public Health Solutions, the NYC conduit for Federal Ryan White AIDS funding. The program features an easy-access admissions process and provides 24-hour staffing, including case managers and a housing specialist to assist residents in obtaining permanent housing. Linkages to the full range of services at The Bridge are available to the residents. Referrals are made to other service providers as well, with the program’s case managers helping to coordinate services.

Although the housing is transitional, with a length of stay not exceeding 6 months, the period of stable housing offered by the program is crucial to link residents to the medical and other services they need. The trusting resident-staff relationships formed in the program create an important foundation for residents to move forward in their lives with hope about the future.
