World AIDS Day 2014: A Week of AmeriCorps Activities in Atlanta

As a Member on the newest team in the AIDS United AmeriCorps Program, I celebrated World AIDS Day through service! In three days my four team members and I provided nearly 200 HIV tests and gave four school presentations all around Atlanta. Because young people aged 13-25 are disproportionately impacted by HIV/AIDS in Atlanta, we focused our outreach at youth.

Recognizing World AIDS Day in Cleveland

“1 in 5 people with HIV don’t know they have it, get tested, get care.” This was the message communicated by Team Cleveland on World AIDS Day. Clear and concise, the message stood out against our bright yellow shirts and caught the eye of the morning commuters passing by.

Hispanic Black Gay Coalition has #PrideInPrevention

The Hispanic Black Gay Coalition (HBGC) works to inspire and empower Hispanic, Latino, and Black LGBTQ communities to improve their lives through activism, education, outreach and counseling. Since 2009, we have worked to bring culturally grounded services and programs to the Greater Boston area. Some of our programs involve youth leadership development, support for survivors of partner abuse, identity support groups, and Gay-Straight Alliance support. Although HBGC is not a direct AIDS Service Organization (ASO), we believe all of our services and programs are preventative in nature and exist to empower and uplift those most at-risk for HIV/AIDS.

Transforming Services, Transforming the Epidemic: Embracing Trauma-Informed Care at Christie's Place

An oasis. A beacon of hope. A safe space. Just a few phrases that describe what Christie’s Place is for hundreds of women living with HIV in San Diego, CA. Serving the San Diego community since 1996, Christie’s Place is a small nonprofit health and human service agency that has been recognized as a national leader in delivering gender-responsive services through innovative models of care in a region where most HIV-specific resources are targeted to HIV-positive men. With a staff of 21 and significant volunteer support, Christie’s Place provides a safety net to address the complex and unique challenges faced by women, children and families impacted by HIV/AIDS, which often keep them from seeking care and/or staying in care.
