Outpatient Program

The Bailey-Boushay House Outpatient Program (OPP) specializes in serving individuals with HIV who need more physical and emotional support than is traditionally available. Most program participants have many complicating life factors, in addition to HIV and other chronic health issues, such as: isolation, mental illness, substance use/abuse and problems maintaining housing.

Our primary purpose is to help clients stay adherent to medical care and medications. Our ultimate goal is that every person with HIV will have equal access to positive outcomes, defined as undetectable HIV viral load, maximized physical and psychological health, a stable living situation, access to adequate nutrition and supportive social connections.

We are open every day of the year from 6:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., except Wednesdays when we close at 2 p.m. Regular connection with social work and nursing (which includes medication management) is required; everything else is optional. All services are free to clients with income under 300 percent of the Federal Poverty Level. 

The Outpatient Program provides:

  • Nursing services (medication and symptom management, health education, counseling and support)
  • Social work/care management    
  • Psychiatric care and mental health support
