Kentucky: Hope Center Receives HIV, Veterans' Grants

October 17, 2008

The Hope Center was recently awarded two grants that will boost its programs for the homeless. The center received a $2.25 million US Department of Health and Human Services grant for HIV outreach, testing, risk-reduction education and substance abuse counseling. "Previously, if clients didn't self-report, we had no way to identify them," said Cecil Dunn, the center's executive director. "This will let us do outreach and talk to people about how we can help them." "Among male substance abusers, you're going to have the highest HIV population," he said. The second grant, from the Department of Veterans Affairs, provides up to $33 a day per person to assist up to 30 homeless veterans.
