FACES NY, Inc. as the sole grantee is proposing to implement Dynamic Regeneration Effective Amongst Minorities [D.R.E.A.M] Project with two locally established partners in the fields of comprehensive medical services and behavioral health so as to facilitate a cohesive flow of services and prevent delays. Our project partners are Citicare, a medical and mental health provider; with locations in close proximity to FACES, Reality House, a substance use/behavioral health provider that provides services on-site at FACES and The Bridge, Inc., a comprehensive behavioral health provided that offers mental health and substance abuse treatment, housing, vocational training, job placement etc., with sites in close proximity to FACES. Project Dream, through its partners will use a strengths-based continuum of care model to provide immediate access to culturally appropriate, trauma-informed substance abuse/co-occurring mental health treatment and HIV/viral hepatitis services. The Project will assist in meeting SAMHSA’s and FACES goal to increase engagement in care for racial and ethnic minority individuals with substance use disorders and/or co-occurring substance use and mental disorders who are at risk for HIV or are HIV positive that receive HIV services/treatment. Each proposed partner affiliated with Project Dream has over 20 years of providing specialized and quality services to the NYC community and the implementation of EBPs. These combined levels of expertise will provide synergy in addressing HIV/AIDS risk and/or care accompanied with access to treatment for substance use and substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders for project participants.
