The mission of AIDS Services of Austin is to enhance the health and well-being of the community and people affected by HIV and AIDS. For more than 27 years, ASA has provided a continuum of services to the greater Central Texas area.

With patience and compassion, you will guide clients, provide resources, and encourage long term stabilization and retention in medical care.

You will have the opportunity to work with a diverse population, acting as part of a multidisciplinary team, and occasionally sharing clients with LVN and Non-Medical Case Managers as dictated by client acuity. Medical Case Managers may also touch on housing, income and language needs as required.
