The Patcha Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of our HIV Engagement Website. This is anew and vital branch of our Foundation with an emphasis on HIV/AIDS outreach. Patcha HIVE is a support organization that provides services, education, and lifestyle resources. We are all the buzz about town, serving the Metro Maryland community. To ensure you have the support you need, we will partner you with a program Navigator. Our program Navigator can meet you for appointments, guide you through networks and help answer questions that may be intimidating, confusing or simply frustrating.
The Patcha Foundation (patchafoundation.org) has teamed with Immigrant Community Services (immiserve.org) to support targeted outreach to racial and ethnic minority persons with HIV in Montgomery County, Maryland and/or Prince George’s County, Maryland who are not engaged in HIV medical care and provide linkage to HIV medical care, medication assistance programs, and other needed health and support services. These services will be provided as part of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Part B Minority AIDS Initiative (MAI) program which seeks to improve access to HIV care and health outcomes for disproportionately affected racial/ethnic minority populations and increase racial/ethnic minority participation in the Maryland AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) and other medication assistance programs.
