HIV & AIDS
Since our founding in 1983, the Center has been fully committed to providing HIV and AIDS services to our community, which has been profoundly affected by the AIDS epidemic.
More than one million people in the United States have HIV, and thousands will die from AIDS-related complications this year alone. At the Center, we provide support for people infected and affected by HIV and AIDS 365 days a year. And thanks to our generous donors, we do it free of charge. We offer individual, couples, family and group counseling, plus a variety of events, speakers and informal social gatherings for positive people and their loved ones.
Support groups include Positive Care I, a group for newly-diagnosed HIV positive men. This group provides emotional support to ease anxiety, fear and isolation related to a new diagnosis and to help members begin to adjust to living with HIV. Positive Care I is open to gay and bisexual men and men of trans-experience.
The Center also offers free rapid HIV testing on Wednesdays from 5-7 p.m.
