How our program works
CARE for AIDS has created an innovative model of care that engages local leaders, churches, and communities in caring for families affected by HIV/AIDS. We believe in a holistic model of care that addresses complex needs— body + soul.
CARE for AIDS operates centers in multiple communities throughout East Africa, and each center is located within a local church. Each center has two counselors who guide a class of 80 clients at a time through a nine-month program. Throughout the program these clients experience transformation in five key areas; physical, emotional, social, economic, and spiritual. We do this through a series of activities outlined below.
We aggregate existing services so that our clients can access them within the local church. Having access to nutrition, medication, spiritual support, education, and employment resources helps clients break the cycle of poverty and disease.
