Past programs: Chemical Dependency, Mental Health and HIV/AIDS Services

In 2011, Neighborhood House concluded a five-year program to reduce HIV/AIDS and chemical dependency among high-risk U.S. born Blacks, East African (Ethiopian, Eritrean, Somali, and Oromo), Cambodian, and Vietnamese youth and women.  The program included free rapid HIV testing -- Neighborhood House provided testing for 976 individuals during the duration of the program. The work was made possible through a grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
Utilizing a federally developed health survey, Project HANDLE assessed over 1,600 clients and linked them to health servicest, including treatment programs relating to HIV/AIDS, Mental Health, and Chemical Dependency.  We also conducted HIV/AIDS and substance abuse prevention presentations to over 1,000 community members utilizing the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) curriculum.
