Description

History
Project Response was founded in 1990. Like many an HIV/AIDS organization, Project Response began as a grass roots volunteer agency that operated from shared office space. Today from two main offices and five satellite offices, the agency serves over 1,400 case management clients in Brevard, Indian River, St. Lucie, Martin, and Okeechobee Counties.

Our Programs Through five case management programs, Project Response links clients to medical care, pharmaceuticals, dental care, mental health counseling, and substance abuse counseling. The agency provides rent, mortgage, and utilities assistance; emergency financial assistance; food pantry services; insurance continuation services; and transportation.

In addition, Project Response provides HIV prevention services and HIV counseling, testing, and linkage services. The agency works to counter the destructive effects of HIV-related stigma through community partnerships and appearances at special events.

Project Response is funded through the Ryan White CARE Act, Florida Medicaid, Housing Opportunities for People with AIDS (HOPWA), the Florida Department of Health, United Way of Brevard County, United Way of St. Lucie County, Children’s Services Council of St. Lucie County, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, Allegany Franciscan Foundation, Altria Corp., and the generosity of individual donors.
