When I first came to Agape Missions, I was newly diagnosed with HIV. I had read about HIV before and my doctor briefly talked to me about HIV and medications but for the most part I was unaware of what it meant to be newly diagnosed. I did not have a job, medical insurance, and had not seen a doctor in over several months. Once I was enrolled in case management, I was able to discuss challenges in my life that were affecting how I lived. With the help from my case manager I was able to sign up for assistance with my medications, find a doctor, and get resources I needed to make the changes I needed in my life. We discussed HIV and how I could still live healthy. I felt more comfortable and had more control over my diagnosis since beginning case management. I am now in a good place. As I continue to overcome barriers in my life, I know Agape Missions is there to help me through it all.
I would like to thank you for all the time and effort you put into helping me find a job, all the hard work paid off because I got a job at Peacock, the lady called me back like she said she would, she even put a good word in about me to the interviewer and by the way the interview went well so I’ll be working in the sanitation department. I also got a call from another company and went to them for an interview as well but Peacock called and told me I got the job yesterday, so I start Monday at 9:30am for orientation. So once again I would like to thank you because this wouldn’t of happened without your tireless effort so continue doing what you doing because guys like myself need people like you who want to see us do something positive with our life, so you take care and God Bless.
