Joining Hearts Grant Recipients:
Grady IDP Pilot Program – “Joining Hearts Emergency Assistance Fund”
The purpose of the Joining Hearts Emergency Assistance Fund is to cover costs as a last resort for necessary items not obtainable through other means that support a patient to begin or remain in care. There are two focus areas for the Joining Hearts Emergency Assistance Grants – qualification to get into care and referral gaps – and both will be administered by the social work team, led by Shellie Bigelow, MSW and Melissa Beaupierre and Grady Health Foundation.
Qualification support can include fees to pay for Georgia ID cards and the supporting documents needed to obtain those IDs. It can also include transportation (Marta or gas cards) to obtain these documents.
Positive Impact Pilot Program – PrEP Services for 30 People
1 Year – $5,000
Goal of Project: To reduce the number of new cases of HIV infection by increasing access to PrEP for at least 30 persons who are appropriate for PrEP but currently not accessing PrEP services, and who otherwise could not access PrEP
Living Room – Emergency Lodging and Recuperative Care
$8,000 (Partial Funding of $197,432 Identified Yearly Need)
The Emergency Lodging and Recuperative Care program assists individuals who are hospitalized and face being homeless upon discharge. After a referral from one of our five local partner hospitals, Living Room helps eligible clients stay off the streets by finding immediate placement in a residential recuperative care facility, paying for care, and providing intensive case management while working toward a more permanent housing solution.
Jerusalem House – New Horizons
$16,496 (Partial Funding of $240,000 Identified Yearly Need)
The New Horizons Program is a Tenant-Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) Program that allows capable individuals and families to live in more independent accommodations throughout the city.
Currently at 11 units, this Tenant-Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) Program will help place a total 30 individuals and/or families into more independent accommodations in the community. Joining Hearts Grant funds will subsidize rent and utility bills (gas, waterRequest: and electric) for 30 residents of the New Horizons Program. Participating residents individually rent apartments in the neighborhood of their choosing and Jerusalem House subsidizes a portion of their rent and utility payments. Clients will continue to have access to self- managed counseling and can remain in the program for up to five years.
Action Cycling Atlanta – AIDS Vaccine 200
Action Cycling Atlanta is entering its 15th year of producing the AIDS Vaccine 200 cycling event, following a record fundraising year. Like all charitable organizations the need is great to continue to seek sponsorship and identify patrons. With increased donations come increased costs and a greater need for support to continue to donate 100% of participant fundraising. We’re seeking a grant amount of $5000.
The grant will be used to support our operating costs, and enable us to continue to donate 100% of participant fundraising.
