Advancing Our Agenda

Spiritual and Emotional Support Group

SAYFSM facilitates an HIV support group that meets twice a month. Participants and their families receive wellness education and emotional support.

Case Management and Care Advocacy

Through our Support Services, we have the potential to make a real and positive change in the community. This is one of our key areas of focus here at Sub-Saharan African Youth and Family Services in Minnesota, and a source of much success for our Non-Profit Organization. We provide:

  • referrals to clinics, mental health providers, legal services, ESL classes
  • assistance with basic needs, such as housing, furniture, household items, food, clothing, employment
  • translation and interpreting assistance
  • transportation

Education & Outreach

Most of our efforts pertaining to educating the community about HIV prevention, presenting at community events, churches, and schools. We emphasize in developing culturally and linguistically appropriate HIV-educational materials and provides HIV counseling, testing, and referral (CTR) at all outreach events, at the SAYFSM office, or at places of an individual’s choosing.
