Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Philadelphia FIGHT is committed to keeping all of our patients safe during the Coronavirus outbreak. As the outbreak has intensified, we have made some changes to keep everyone safe. To assure your safety and the safety of our staff, we cannot accept walk-in visits at this time. Please call us before visiting any of our clinical sites. We will arrange for you to be seen in the safest possible environment for you and we can also provide guidance over the phone if your needs can be met without coming in.

Philadelphia Rental Relief Program

Philadelphia has instituted a rental relief program for people who have lost income because of the COVID-19 pandemic.  This program is for renters, whose incomes are under 500% of the poverty level.  That amount is $63,800 for one individual; add $22,400 for each additional person in the household.  Rental assistance is for three months with the possibility of extensions.  This program is limited to people who receive Ryan White services and who do not have other housing subsidies.  Click here for links to the guidelines, and to the application.  Only your case manager can submit the application.

Check Out Our New Series of FIGHT Stories

FIGHT Stories is an annual project that started in 2010 as a way for FIGHT’s clients and consumers to share their personal stories of struggle, triumph and hope with our community. At FIGHT, we believe storytelling is one of the most valuable tools we have to communicate how impactful the work of our agency has been and continues to be in the lives of those we serve.

Every year, a dedicated team of staffers and interns begins the multi-step, multimedia process of interviewing, audio/video recording, photographing story participants and finally, compiling the words of each participant into a story than can be shared on the internet, in FIGHT publications, and on our office walls.

2020 is the 10th anniversary of the FIGHT Stories Project, and we’re proud to have profiled nearly 100 community members. These stories are the heart of FIGHT and we look forward to sharing more inspiring and powerful journeys of the clients and consumers that we are proud to serve.
