HIV Medical Care
Providing compassionate medical treatment that empowers health and prevention in an outpatient setting:
The key to living a longer, healthier life with HIV is a full continuum of care. Our case managers work with a variety of community-based services to provide the very best care and assistance available to our city’s most marginalized populations.
Hours: Monday – Friday 9:00am – 5:00pm
New onsite pharmacy, owned by San Antonio AIDS Foundation.
Medical Case Management – Clients meet regularly with our medical case managers who ensure access to medical care, retention in care and adherence to medications. Treatment adherence counseling is provided to ensure readiness for and adherence to complex HIV treatments.
In addition, medical case managers help to navigate and coordinate the complex social service system thus ensuring access to all available medical and supportive services that may help to optimize their life situations and improve healthcare outcomes.
Non-Medical Case Management – Our non-medical case managers provide guidance and assistance to clients in accessing medical, social, community, legal, financial and other needed services. Non-medical case managers may also help clients access other public and private programs for which they may be eligible, such as Medicaid, Medicare Part D, State Pharmacy Assistance Programs, Pharmaceutical Manufacturer’s Patient Assistance Programs and Health Insurance Marketplace Plans.
Clients receive HIV-related oral health care or dental care through dental subcontractors in the community. Through Ryan White funding SAAF can subcontract diagnostic, preventative and therapeutic services by general dental practitioners, dental specialists and dental hygienists.

Traditional Housing: Because housing stability is a crucial element in maintaining an HIV treatment regimen, SAAF provides transitional housing for up to 15 individuals experiencing chronic homelessness. The facility includes rooms for men, women, transgender and non-binary people living with HIV. Residents may remain in the program for up to 180 days and are eligible to re-enter after 90 days. SAAF’s transitional house is a substance and alcohol free environment.
Participants in the program are referred from organizations providing HIV services or other social support programs, such as justice system discharge units, hospitals, or drug treatment centers. Residents are required to pay 30% of their adjusted gross income in rent monthly.
Rental Assistance – Since 2000, the San Antonio AIDS Foundation has administered Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA), a HUD program, assistance of up to 30 months – providing clients with long-term rental assistance.
