Programs

Child Care

At the heart of our organization is our childcare program. Since our inception as the Baltimore Pediatric HIV Program in 1998, we have worked to provide childcare and respite to families impacted by HIV in the Baltimore area.

Family Services

LIGHT offers a wide variety of services for families affected by traumatic physical or mental health events, from monthly support meetings to quality respite family activities.

Non-Medical Case Management

Non-Medical Case Management Services assists HIV infected clients, who are unable to advocate for themselves, to maneuver the bureaucracies that exist in obtaining medical, legal, financial and other much needed support services.

Emergency Financial Assistance

We understand the impact of coping with a new regimen in the treatment of your HIV/AIDS diagnosis. It can become overwhelming and possibly have a negative effect on your finances. LIGHT’s Housing Case Management Team is available to assist with your needs, offering once-per-year emergency financial assistance to help with rent, utilities or food necessities.

A Step Beyond

At LIGHT, we understand that education and outreach are a crucial part of responding to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Our program, A Step Beyond Outreach, goes further than traditional community outreach to connect those affected by HIV/AIDS with medical care. We believe preventing the spread of HIV/AIDS is a twofold process through education and testing.

LIGHT Conversation
Support Group

For those impacted by HIV/AIDS, life can bring emotional and social challenges. However, learning about how these challenges affect your feelings and behavior, as well as having an outlet to share struggles with others who are impacted, can help make addressing these challenges a little easier.
