Southern New Hampshire HIV/AIDS Task Force Welcomes Migdalia to the Team

On 06/24/2013

The Southern New Hampshire HIV/AIDS Task Force was recently awarded a contract from the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services to provide HIV medical case management and support services to individuals living with HIV/AIDS throughout the State of New Hampshire.

While this is not new funding or new services, this is the first time that the State has contracted with just one agency for these services, as opposed to reimbursing on a fee-for-service basis to all of the AIDS Service Organizations throughout the state. The Task Force will continue to provide these services locally, and will subcontract to other New Hampshire AIDS Service Organizations for the clients in their area. As part of this new contract, individuals living with HIV/AIDS who are receiving financial assistance from the state for their medical needs must now apply for this program through a contracted agency, whereas previously, they could do so independently.

This has created an increase in clients for the Task Force and with the funding in the new contract we were able to hire an additional case manager to work with the influx of new clients. Migdalia Rodriguez, our newest bilingual/bi-cultural case manager, began working with us at the end of April. We are more than happy to serve a larger population that will benefit from the services that we offer at the Task Force. The volunteers and staff at the Task Force welcome her to the team!

Mogdalia, Case Manager for Southern New Hampshire HIV/AIDS Task Force

Migdalia, Case Manager for Southern New Hampshire HIV/AIDS Task Force

 

1.  How did you come across the Task Force?

My previous employment consisted of me helping people. I really enjoy helping others so I knew that I wanted to continue with a career of helping in the community.  When someone told me about the position for a Case Manager at the Task Force, I knew it’s what I wanted to do.  I lost a family member to AIDS so I want to help others with the disease.

2. What three words would you use to describe the Task Force?

Compassionate, Caring and Supportive

3. What is a day like for you as a case manager at the Task Force?

No two days are alike.  One day you’re doing a new intake and the next you are helping someone get connected to medical care and other services.  You could also find yourself spending a day stocking the food pantry. It is important for the Task Force to stay stocked. When I know that clients are receiving nutritional food from the pantry and are able to access these resources, it is very rewarding.

4. What are some of the challenges a Task Force case manager face?

I’ve only been there for a short time so I haven’t had any challenges yet.  I imagine as a new case manager at the Task Force, challenges will arise. I look forward to tackling them head on!

5. Being the newest team member of the Task Force, what are you looking forward to the most?

Working with clients! I look forward to getting to know the community and contributing to a better quality of life. I also am excited to work with the wonderful team of staff at the Task Force.
