Organization Description:

JRI Health operates several supported housing programs serving individuals and their families who are living with HIV disease. While many are living longer and healthier lives as a result of accessing medications that fight the progression of HIV, many are also dealing with illnesses related to side effects of those medications. These same individuals also contend with other challenges related to co-occurring illnesses and their treatments including cancer, diabetes, kidney disease, and brain infections, to name a few.

The mission statement of JRI Health is "JRI Health pursues social justice by providing underserved individuals and communities with opportunities to develop the tools and skills essential in creating strength, well-being and autonomy. We do this through compassionate support, constant innovation and community leadership."

Opportunities for Student Involvement:

We are seeking a Divinity student to work with our clients who are living in either of our two residential sites: River Street Community in Mattapan and Huntington at Symphony near Boston's Symphony Hall, as well as those living in the community and receiving home-based or office-based case management/supportive services from the staff of our Assisted Living Program. (Offices located in downtown Boston.)

We would hope the student would provide support to our clients at their homes and/or in the hospital. We also hope the student will assist with organizing an informal memorial at the residential program at the passing of a client for both residents and staff.
