Outreach — HIV and HCV Prevention

The Outreach program is educational intervention conducted by peer educators face-to-face with at-risk people in their neighborhoods or community gathering places. Our outreach team engages people who would otherwise not seek treatment or education and assists them in identifying and accessing needed services. BCCS provides HCV testing, HIV testing, and pregnancy screenings.

COPE

Project Engage

The only-one-of-its-kind-in-the-country program is in partnership with Christiana Care and involves an on-site peer-to-peer engagement specialist at the Wilmington Hospital. When a customer is treated and found to be using a controlled substance, a BCCS intervention specialist is brought in to link them to a post-hospital treatment program for drug use, mental health or case management needs.
