Project Response, Inc., established in 1991, began as a grass roots volunteer agency that operated from a shared office. It was and is still a lifeline for people living with HIV/AIDS on the Space Coast. Our agency has grown exponentially in response to the increase of HIV transmissions in our communities. As a community based HIV/AIDS organization and case management agency, Project Response strives to provide the essential services to our clients to assist them in managing HIV disease successfully.
To enhance our mission, we have recently opened the Project Response Testing and Treatment Center for expanded services to all residents in Brevard County providing screening and treatment for HIV and STD's, including Hep C and Pre and Post Exposure HIV Prevention Treatment known as PrEP and PEP.
Project Response, Inc. continues to be a resource for all ages, occupations, businesses, corporations and agencies throughout the county, including parents, educators, and other non-profit programs that need information and tools to educate others and to stop the spread of HIV.
Through our case management programs, Project Response links clients to medical care, pharmaceuticals, dental care, mental health counseling, and various support groups. The agency provides rent, mortgage, and utilities assistance; emergency financial assistance; food pantry services; insurance continuation services; and transportation.
Our Community Outreach Education and Testing Program 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, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, and the generosity of individual donors.
