HopeSprings is proud to have our
volunteers serve with the following partners:
The JACQUES Initiative
, a program of the Institute of Human Virology (IHV) at the University of Maryland Baltimore, focuses on decreasing the morbidity and mortality associated with HIV illness through care delivery while providing early intervention services through activities such as testing, outreach and linkage to care. We are committed to providing a “safe place” for our clients through professionally delivered services and providing access to clinical research for all. The JACQUES Initiative currently provides HIV care and support to Baltimoreans including HIV primary medical care, case management, transportation, HIV testing and linkage to care in addition to its unique treatment adherence program.AIRS
provides comprehensive supportive housing services to enhance quality of life, emphasizing self-sufficiency for low-income and homeless individuals and families living with or at risk of HIV/AIDS or other disabilities.Moveable Feast
is a nutritional support program that prepares and delivers meals and groceries at no charge to people and their families throughout greater Baltimore and Maryland’s Eastern Shore who are in need and living with HIV/AIDS and other life-challenging conditions.Open Table
trains congregations to partner their vocational and life experiences and personal networks with people in poverty to develop and implement plans that create sustainability and wholeness. We began this partnership in 2013 to address the needs of HIV+ individuals living in Baltimore.
Whitman-Walker Health is a Washington DC community health center specializing in HIV/AIDS care and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender care. Together we work to provide Tables to HIV+ brothers and sisters receiving care at WWH.
We have other important partners who assist us in serving those we serve.
We would like to thank Brother, Help Thyself for their continual support of different programming within HopeSprings. For information regarding BHT, visit their website.
Thank you to the Foundation of Spirituality and Medicine for supporting our Journey Model.
