Integrating HIV Services into Homeless Services

Integrating HIV into Homeless Services

The Statewide Homeless/HIV Integration Project (SH/HIP) partners with homeless shelters to promote best practices in addressing the issue of HIV/AIDS among people experiencing homelessness.

HIV integration in homeless service settings promotes HIV discussions, education, support, and referrals with people who are experiencing homelessness.

Our services include needs assessment, staff training, curriculum development, and resource development and dissemination. In exploring HIV integration strategies, we build on the strengths and culture of each of our partners.
