COMPASS Program: Helping people living with HIV/AIDS move in a healthy direction

The Institute’s COMPASS Program provides caring, confidential treatment in a private setting. Our goal is to empower people living with HIV/AIDS to maintain good health. We work with you as a team to coordinate your clinical services, case management, and health education so that you can stay well.

The Institute for Family Health is committed to providing care to all individuals regardless of their ability to pay. If you are unable to pay for care, or if your insurance does not cover services, you will not be turned away.
