Big News @ HACHR!

WE ARE NOW AN HIV/HCV QUALIFIED TESTING CENTER!

Since the day we imagined HACHR we have always imagined and in-house Testing to Treatment program. This vision included on site testing and linkage to care and we have diligently been working toward this goal  for a number of years now. We have finally achieved it! We are now one a handful of State and Federally qualified HIV/HCV testing centers locally. We are working with Open Door Community Health Centers to have the ability to immediately connect people with treatment and other resources. We have two Ohio State Masters in Social Work Students who are building and developing case management and navigator positions within our organization. We know the Gold Standard is less referrals and more warm hand offs and that is an approach we value, this newest accomplishment even further solidifies that model into our own program operations.

If you or someone you know may need to be tested please reach out so that we may help get you connected with testing and other services as needed. this service is not only for people who use drugs but is also available for anyone who may be at risk.
