Transforming Services, Transforming the Epidemic: Embracing Trauma-Informed Care at Christie's Place

An oasis. A beacon of hope. A safe space. Just a few phrases that describe what Christie’s Place is for hundreds of women living with HIV in San Diego, CA. Serving the San Diego community since 1996, Christie’s Place is a small nonprofit health and human service agency that has been recognized as a national leader in delivering gender-responsive services through innovative models of care in a region where most HIV-specific resources are targeted to HIV-positive men. With a staff of 21 and significant volunteer support, Christie’s Place provides a safety net to address the complex and unique challenges faced by women, children and families impacted by HIV/AIDS, which often keep them from seeking care and/or staying in care.

What is a leader? This was a question discussed at great length at AIDS United’s inaugural “Emerging Female Leaders Workshop” in San Juan, Puerto Rico in mid-August 2014. AIDS United (AU) invited ten women who have managerial or executive experience at community-based organizations and have demonstrated a passion and commitment to ending HIV/AIDS in Puerto Rico.

Success! Emerging Female Leaders Workshop

I had the amazing opportunity to participate in a two-day leadership workshop in San Juan, PR for HIV/AIDS service providers from around the island. The Workshop was made possible by a generous grant from AIDS United. Our gathering was a huge success—10 female leaders from ten organizations attended. The days were packed, but much was accomplished.

Medical AIDS Outreach (MAO) of Alabama was recently honored to be featured as part of the Social Innovation Fund (SIF) Investment Spotlight during the Grantee Convening in Washington DC on September 17th and 18th. Further, we were thrilled when our project was selected as one of 11 programs featured at the What Works Showcase at the White House on September 19th. It was a great opportunity to demonstrate how Medical AIDS Outreach of Alabama and our collaborating partners at AIDS Action Coalition and Whatley Health Services have used SIF backing to move medical and support services, using High Definition telemedicine technology, to underserved poverty stricken counties in Alabama.

Commemorating AmeriCorps 20th Anniversity Through Service

Team Indy started the day off at Fort Benjamin Harrison with AmeriCorps members from across the state to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of AmeriCorps. The area was a sea of blue from everyone’s 20th Anniversary shirt! We were given an opportunity to introduce the AIDS United AmeriCorps Program and share how we impact the Indianapolis community. It was an incredible opportunity! Although we weren’t at the White House, we were able to watch a live-video feed of the President and were able to take the AmeriCorps pledge along with him. After awards and speeches were given, we were off to our first service project with Step Up!
