Positive Families Program

All parents need to plan for their children’s future, but asking someone to take care of your child is hard. The Positive Families Programs focuses on the future planning needs for families affected with HIV. Positive Families provides short- term supportive services (up to 12 months) at no cost to HIV Affected Families with Dependent Children (under 21) in the eight (8) counties of Western New York. All information is kept private.
