Since its founding in 1985, AIDS Services Foundation Orange County has concentrated its energy on providing care and comfort to those living with or affected by HIV/AIDS. Now, with new medications helping us win battles in the prevention war, much of the work that we do can help the agency and our clients focus on the end of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Orange County. The first steps are prevention, education and testing. We need to keep those at risk from contracting the virus, and we need to identify those who do have the virus. Once we know their status, ASF can offer them lifesaving care that will reduce their viral load and make them less likely to transmit the virus to someone else. Continually focusing beyond the horizon, we recognize that eliminating the stigma associated with HIV/AIDS and encouraging everyone to know their HIV status are critical steps, but equally important is the need to simultaneously remind our community, as well as the world at large, that the fight to end AIDS has not yet been won. Statistics provided by the Orange County Health Care Agency reveal that there are more than 7,000 individual living with HIV in Orange County with 300 OC residents newly diagnosed annually, which indicates the continued need to provide the LGBTQ+ community with compassion, comprehensive care to end the epidemic. We won't rstop until we reach zero new infections.

Radiant Health Centers has established a plethora of programs and services, as part of its strategy, to provide care and comfort to those living with or affected by HIV/AIDS, as well as fight the epidemic itself. Radiant Health Centers' Health Education and Prevention programs seek to inform and teach the public to avoid contracting HIV. In addition to working with the general public and at-risk communities on prevention education, ASF health educators also work with those already living with the disease, instructing them on ways to prevent the spread of HIV. SOMOS is a program of Radiant Health Centers that provides an HIV prevention social group for MSM (men who have sex with men) youth ages 18-29, which uses an Mpowerment project model designed to address the needs of young gay/bisexual men. This program enacts a sex-positive intervention that teaches the participants about HIV and STIs, safe sex practices, HIV testing and PrEP medications. Programs and activities are provided at no cost to participants. ASF provides an individualized case management approach to all clients, ensuring they all receive assistance tailor-made to his or her personal needs. ASF's case managers link clients to the array of free services provided by the agency such as food, housing, transportation, mental health services and family services. In addition, they assist in securing public and private benefits available in the wider community. Radiant Health Centers recognizes the importance of early and frequent HIV testing and has responded with increasing testing and outreach in at-risk communities and the community in general, free of cost and anonymous. Radiant Health Center's Nutrition Services program provides groceries, vitamins and dietary and nutritional supplements through its on-site food pantry for people living with HIV/AIDS who lack the financial resources to purchase the items themselves. Because of the toxicity and side effects of HIV medication regimens, having the right food available to help take medications is an important part of adherence. Radiant Health Centers offers qualified clients a multi-tiered transportation system composed of Orange County Transportation Authority passes, subsidized coupons for use on the OCTA's ACCESS bus system, subsidized taxi rides, and transportation provided on ASF vans and buses operated by ASF drivers. Radiant Health Centers offers financial assistance for rent and mortgage payments, utilities subsidies, rental deposits, and emergency and transitional housing so that clients an focus on their current and future health. Through the agency's mental health program, targeted support groups and individual counseling are made available for clients and their families, free of charge. Family and Children's programs offer children who are diagnosed or affected by HIV a safe place to share their feelings about living with the disease without discrimination or judgement.
