HIV testing is performed using a test called the INSTI HIV Antibody test. It requires a tiny amount of blood from a finger stick and takes 60 seconds for your results to develop.

Confirmatory HIV testing is provided if the initial result is positive, with medical and social case management services available at no cost.

  • All screening and confirmatory services are provided free of charge.
  • Counseling is available in English and Spanish.
  • Anonymous Testing: Only HIV testing may be done anonymously. You do not have to provide your name or contact information, but you must provide your date of birth. All testing services are strictly confidential. If the initial HIV screen is positive, you may choose to continue the test confidentially.

The San Antonio Aids Foundation (SAAF) provides housing assistance for individuals who are currently enrolled in the program. These services include:

Transitional Housing

Because housing stability is a crucial element in maintaining an HIV treatment regimen, SAAF provides transitional housing for up to 15 individuals experiencing chronic homelessness. The facility includes rooms for men, women, transgender, and non-binary people living with HIV. Residents may remain in the program for up to 180 days and are eligible to re-enter after 90 days. SAAF’s transitional house is a substance and alcohol-free environment.

Participants in the program are referred from organizations providing HIV services or other social support programs, such as justice system discharge units, hospitals, or drug treatment centers. Residents are required to pay 30% of their adjusted gross income in rent monthly.

Rental Assistance

Since 2000, the San Antonio AIDS Foundation has administered Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA), a HUD program, assistance of up to 30 months – providing clients with long-term rental assistance.

Housing services are available for those currently enrolled in SAAF.

SAAF provides 3 free hot nutritious meals a day, 365 days a year. Special holiday meals are prepared and served for Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.

Since 1986, the San Antonio AIDS Foundation has been the only AIDS organization in the city providing free hot meals for anyone who is HIV-positive. In order to receive meals, one need not be a client of SAAF, but must have a meal card. All menus are reviewed by a registered dietitian and include foods that help provide for the particular dietary needs of persons with HIV/AIDS.

MEAL CARDS (OBTAINING A CARD IS EASY):

  • Please see your primary case manager (at any AIDS service agency) to get meal card eligibility paperwork to bring back to SAAF so that you can have a meal card.
  • You will be asked to show the card each time you come in for a meal.
  • You must see your medical case manager every six months to renew your card.
  • We ask that you check in with your case manager to review needs, confirm plans for a visit to your doctor for checkup and lab work, and to discuss progress so that you can best manage your HIV-positive status and live a healthy life.

Free.

As a teenager, it can be difficult and rather awkward to approach your parents with questions about sex. For many teens, it can be more comfortable to go to friends for advice. However, there is a great deal of incorrect information out there and it is important to know what information should be accepted as fact.

In today’s society, with all the access to information we have on the internet, it can be hard to judge what information is accurate and what is not. The Teen Talk Team at the San Antonio AIDS Foundation (SAAF) has created this website to provide access to detailed and accurate information about sex, life, and everything else that comes with being a teen.

Knowledge is power. The San Antonio AIDS Foundation continually educates the public about HIV - providing the tools to fight both the spread and stigma of the disease. From public school presentations and outreach in correctional facilities to workplace seminars and professional workshops - as well as through targeted social media campaigns - our prevention education team reaches tens of thousands of people a year.

Started in 1992, the "You're The Cure" program has been providing prevention education services to over 20,000 participants annually. Services are provided to eight school districts in Bexar County and to three school districts in surrounding counties. The San Antonio AIDS Foundation is the only AIDS service organization (ASO) that provides HIV/STD prevention education to school districts in Bexar County.

We partner with the following school districts for HIV/STD prevention education:

  • San Antonio Independent School District
  • Northeast Independent School District
  • Northside Independent School District
  • UT Teen Health

The program also works at local college campuses, charter schools, trade schools, drug treatment programs, juvenile and adult probations, and in correction facilities in Bexar County.

If you are interested in receiving prevention education services at your organization or business, please contact SAAF Prevention Education Coordinator Vanessa Zuniga, at (210) 225-4715 or [email protected].
