HIV Resource Hub + COVID-19 Financial Assistance

Are you living with HIV, taking PrEP or need HIV testing? We can help! The AIDS Foundation of Chicago and Center on Halsted can help with emergency financial assistance (rent, utility payments) for people who are living with HIV and who are HIV-negative and taking PrEP. We can also link people living with HIV to medications, case management, medical care, food, mental health, substance use treatment and more. We can connect people vulnerable to HIV to PrEP, HIV testing, medical care and more. Call the HIV Resource Hub at 1-844-HUB-4040. Services are available in Chicago, Cook County and the Collar Counties (the Chicago Metropolitan Area).
