Latino Services & Outreach

Enlaces Por La Salud

Funded through a partnership with UNC-Chapel Hill, the RAIN Latino Services and Outreach program is a statewide effort to increase identifying monolingual all Latino men and transgendered women. Through a partnership with UNC-Chapel Hill, this unique program allows RAIN the ability to target one of the most vulnerable and burdened populations.

The Enlaces Personal Health Navigator (PHN):

  • provides HIV testing to the community through non-traditional testing hours
  • assists HIV+ Latino/a population with accessing medical treatment

Our PHN works to build trust and form relationships with the Latino/a community and often works with many community partners.

Once individuals have been identified the PHN works with them to ensure they are properly linked to medical care and continue to access culturally appropriate services without barriers. The PHN also functions as a case manager for the clients.
