HIV Services

For 35 years, Compass has provided medical and non-medical case management services for people impacted by HIV and AIDS. The program assists clients in identifying appropriate service options by providing guidance and instructions with documents to ease the process to obtain medical assistance.

In addition to our Health Services Department, the Compass HIV Prevention Team helps educate the public on how to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS. This team works closely with case management to assist clients in entering care with support and consideration of clients needs. Currently, the case management team serves over 400 individuals annually in Palm Beach County.
