About: “Our mission is wellness for individuals and communities affected by HIV and Hepatitis C through education, prevention and support. Our vision is: Empowering choices. Engaging communities. Ending transmission.

Today we serve hundreds of people living with HIV, helping them to better understand their diagnosis and experience improved wellness and quality of life. Based on a philosophy of harm reduction, we meet clients where they are at free of judgment and help to improve their current situation.

Our prevention work is evidence based focusing on key target populations including Gay Men and MSM, Aboriginal Communities and African Communities. We educate service providers, community partners and the general population on technicalities of HIV while also advocating for people living with HIV. Our work is unique and built upon a strong foundation of prevention + support + advocacy put in place by a group of concerned Calgarians back in the 1980s.”
