"The report of my death was an exaggeration."

...or... "Don't call it a comeback. I've been here for years."

In the "Beyond 35" update distributed via email and social media in April, I shared that APEB made the difficult decision to end all medical case management and psychosocial support services funded by the Ryan White Program. Eliminating those services and the associated staff positions allowed the agency to consolidate all remaining services in a central location and reduce lease payment obligations in downtown Oakland by over $250K annually... We moved, but we didn't close!

APEB continues to provide:

  • Rapid, confidential HIV and Hepatitis C education, testing, and linkage-to-care services;
  • Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) navigation;
  • Substance use prevention and sexual health education services for youth ages 13-24;
  • Project Independence and HOPWA housing case management for people living with HIV; and
  • Targeted case management services for clients enrolled in the California AIDS Medi-Cal Waiver program.

All APEB staff and services are now based in East Oakland at City of Refuge UCC located at 8400 Enterprise Way.

While we don't expect many of our downtown clients to drop-in to the new location at 8400 Enterprise Way, our mobile unit will be more visible throughout the community, and our licensed 2-exam room community health clinic will be ready to see patients again this summer. Housing Case Manager Shirley Gainey will also maintain limited office hours for clients at Tassafaronga Village on 85th Avenue.

APEB is positioning itself for the future by exploring options for program sustainability beyond our 35th Anniversary. In the coming months, we will introduce you to our Management Team and Board of Directors. Stayed tuned for an end-of-summer Open House at City of Refuge and an end-of-
