Organizational Philosophy

CRR recognizes how people of different cultures access care, sustained in treatment and utilize distinct patterns of communication, health beliefs, behavior, interpretation and problem-solving.  CRR has operationalized the concept that cultural beliefs impact health beliefs, help-seeking activities, interactions with healthcare professionals, healthcare practices and health outcomes (including adherence to life-prolonging medication regimens), and this understanding grounds our evidence and practice based clinical model. 
 
At CRR, trained, culturally competent and ethnically indigenous counselors offer health education, holistic risk reduction, prevention interventions, and HIV/AIDS treatment in the client’s native language.
