Trial Purpose and Description
The purpose of this project is to expand and enhance the local implementation of a community infrastructure that integrates housing, behavioral health, and addiction treatment services for highly vulnerable populations at-risk for or living with HIV (PARLWH), by virtue of their involvement in criminal justice (CJ) systems and/or engagement in sex work. This study will expand and enhance local implementations of community services to integrate housing, behavioral health, and addiction treatment services to improve access to health services, social support, housing, and recovery support services and facilitate reintegration into society and reduce recidivism among this highly vulnerable population.
Persons aged 18+ who have recently been involved in the criminal justice system and are homeless or in an unstable housing situation.
