About the Organization:
What continues to be unique about the Momentum model is that our congregate meal and pantry service attracts the hardest-to-reach individuals with HIV/AIDS, and that we provide all our services in a non-judgmental and supportive environment in our clients’ own neighborhoods. Our comprehensive team of nurses, nutritionists, social workers, chaplains and other specialists engage more than 3,000 low-income individuals with HIV/AIDS every year during meals, and educate, counsel, and link them to primary healthcare, mental health and substance abuse treatment, housing, and other essential services. Momentum works because of the pooling of public and private sector resources, our dedicated staff, committed Board of Directors, caring volunteers, and the trust of thousands of HIV/AIDS clients and their families.
