Magellan Cares Foundation Presents Funds to HIV/AIDS Organizations
The Magellan Cares Foundation announced a donation of $25,000 distributed to the San Francisco AIDS Foundation (SFAF) and the Positive Resource Center (PRC), located in San Francisco, California.
“We are proud of the Magellan Cares Foundation’s support of vital HIV/AIDS organizations, such as the PRC and SFAF, whose critical work on behalf of their community aligns with our purpose of leading humanity to healthy vibrant lives,” said Meredith Delk, general manager, Government Markets, Magellan Rx Management.
Since its establishment in 1982, SFAF has provided a wide range of culturally competent health services for people impacted by HIV and Hepatitis C (HCV) in San Francisco. Approximately 85 percent of SFAF’s client population are low income and eligible to receive public benefits such as the AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP). Additionally, the donation will support the organization’s rental assistance for extremely low income households.
PRC, certified as an ADAP since 2016, offers enrollment to eligible clients in ADAP and the Office of AIDS Health insurance Premium Payment Program (OA-HIPP). PRC program services also include client consultations, legal advocacy, technical assistance to community partners, and community training and outreach. Funds donated to PRC will assist with the ADAP program.
“Magellan cares deeply for the communities we serve,” said Deanna Johnston, executive director, Magellan Cares Foundation. “Donations like these, through the Magellan Cares Foundation, allow us to also put that value into action through our Foundation and make a difference for individuals, beyond surviving to thrive and live healthy vibrant lives."
