The Frannie Peabody Center provides access to HIV care through case management, behavioral health counseling, and housing assistance programs and supports individuals in adhering to critical HIV medication. Sustained viral load suppression reduces the risk of transmitting HIV and contributes to lasting health and wellness. Our risk-reduction, education, and HIV testing services provide the community with the tools that best meet individualized needs in preventing HIV infection.
HIV Case Management
The primary goal of HIV case management services is to ensure clients have the resources necessary to achieve and maintain stable health.
Stable, affordable housing assistance is closely linked to successful HIV outcomes. Frannie Peabody Center proudly partners with fellow HIV/AIDS service providers to administer statewide housing assistance for people living with HIV/AIDS in Maine funded by the US Dept. of Housing & Urban Development.
Behavioral Health Counseling
In 2015, Frannie Peabody Center became licensed with the State of Maine to provide mental health counseling. These in-house services ensure quality care with a specialized knowledge of HIV treatment, transmission, risk, and the impact stigma can have on the path to health stability. Counseling is currently provided by Keith Riley, LCSW, who spent five years as a FPC case manager. These services are offered to individuals regardless of HIV status.
Frannie Peabody Center provides rapid low-barrier, confidential HIV and Hepatitis C testing, as well as linkage to care, education and awareness.The program also offers help with PrEP and PEP navigation. For the full array of services and information, visit here…
