History

Rooted in the 1998 merger of Health Crisis Network (1983) and Community Research Initiative (1989) – Care Resource became South Florida’s oldest and largest HIV/AIDS service organization.

Health Crisis Network (HCN), founded in 1983, focused on providing a response to the epidemic with crisis intervention, social support and educational programs. Community Research Initiative (CRI), founded in 1989, pioneered the implementation of community-based clinical trials through its network of physicians across Miami-Dade and Broward Counties.

Virtually all of the popular anti-retroviral drugs widely used today have been studied by the health center through its clinical research program. In 1999 primary medical care was implemented, creating a system to rapidly and effectively triage those identified as HIV positive into a comprehensive system for medical care and supportive services.

In 2009, Care Resource became a Federally Qualified Health Center with offices in Fort Lauderdale, Midtown Miami, Little Havana and Miami-Beach, offering general primary care services to the whole South Florida community.
