Case Management Program

advocacy, support, & resources

Our Case Management Program helps close the gap of intersecting health disparities faced by many LGBTQ people. In-house case managers address barriers to your care and help you access and navigate medical, social, community, legal, and financial resources.

Case management is available to current patients.
