Continuum of Care
Having identified the special needs for mental health, chemical dependency treatment, and HIV care for the population of homeless people we serve on Staten Island, Project Hospitality has developed a comprehensive continuum of compassionate care over the years to meet those special needs while providing the basics of food, clothing, and shelter and developing models of housing that would provide long-term support with the highest level of self-sufficiency possible. This continuum of care includes clinical care and a variety of housing models — emergency, transitional, and permanent supportive — to meet the needs of multiply diagnosed homeless persons.
The multidisciplinary and integrated service delivery continuum of HIV support services provides a safety net for many clients with multiple needs in addition to living with AIDS. It provides our clients the support of a larger recovery community, where living with HIV is one factor among other disabilities and life stories.
