Through education, prevention, research, care and treatment and support services, Care Resource improves upon the health and overall quality of life of our diverse South Florida communities in need.
For 30 years, Care Resource has provided HIV/AIDS research, prevention, care and treatment services to individuals in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties and has become South Florida’s oldest and largest HIV/AIDS service organization. Persons living with HIV/AIDS have had access at a “one-stop” location to primary medical care, oral health care, research studies, information and referrals, medical case management, mental health and substance abuse counseling, counseling and testing, health screenings and support services.
Recognizing the need for quality medical care for our clients’ partners and families, as well as others in the community, the Board of Directors of Care Resource made the decision to expand services beyond a diagnosis of HIV/AIDS to provide primary medical services to encompass children, youth, families and seniors with a focus on our lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender (LGBT) community. All of Care Resource’s four (4) facilities, including Miami-Dade, Little Havana-(Miami-Dade), Miami Beach and Ft. Lauderdale, have been designated as Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) and are now providing comprehensive health and support services to address the full health care needs of our pediatric, adolescent and adult populations. Care Resource was also recognized as a 2013 Leader in LGBT Healthcare Equality by the Healthcare Equality Index for our commitment to serving the LGBT community’s healthcare needs. Services include well child services, gynecological care, general adult primary care, oral health, HIV primary care, research, diagnostic laboratory and X-ray, screenings, immunizations, voluntary family planning and referrals to obstetrical and other specialty care services. Support services include case management, outpatient mental health and substance abuse counseling, HIV and STI testing, wellness screening, outreach, nutrition and referrals. As a leader in providing HIV/AIDS disease management control for 30 years, Care Resource is uniquely positioned to assist our patients in long-term disease management.
Care Resource has demonstrated excellence in the field of HIV/AIDS as it works to fulfill its mission and have a positive impact on Broward and Miami-Dade communities. Our work in the community has earned us the confidence of our clients as well as public and private funding at local, state and federal levels. Fundraising activities and hundreds of invaluable volunteers help raise awareness, bring hope and build a sense of community.
