Family & Perinatal Programs
ActionAIDS first began programming for women in 1988. In 1990, the Family Program was developed as part of the Circle of Care that coordinates services among hospitals, clinics and social service providers serving women and children throughout Philadelphia.
Focusing on the needs of the entire family as a holistic unit, the program serves 120 families with 450 members with intensive case management and in-home assistance. Services include helping with the tasks of daily living, shopping, housekeeping, nutrition counseling, meal preparation, medication management, child care, respite care, transportation to medical appointments, and companionship.
The Perinatal Program serves pregnant women living with HIV and AIDS each year, helping them both to manage their own health needs and to deliver healthy babies who are HIV negative.
