Advancing Our Agenda
Transportation services are available for getting to and from medical appointments, pharmacies, support group meetings, and meal programs. Clients receive either a bus card or transportation by staff in an Agency vehicle. SAYFSM will provide a voucher for a taxi ride only when a client is too ill to take public transportation.
CASE MANAGEMENT AND CARE ADVOCACY
Through our Support Services, we have the potential to make a real and positive change in the community. This is one of our key areas of focus here at Sub-Saharan African Youth and Family Services in Minnesota, and a source of much success for our Non-Profit Organization. We provide:
referrals to clinics, mental health providers, legal services, ESL classes
assistance with basic needs, such as housing, furniture, household items, food, clothing, employment
translation and interpreting assistance
EDUCATION & OUTREACH
Most of our efforts pertaining to educating the community about HIV prevention, presenting at community events, churches, and schools. We emphasize in developing culturally and linguistically appropriate HIV-educational materials and provides HIV counseling, testing, and referral (CTR) at all outreach events, at the SAYFSM office, or at places of an individual’s choosing.
