Proyecto Impacto

Also known as MenTe, Proyecto Impacto works with young Latino gay and bisexual men ages 18-29. The program is a group level intervention that aims to provide a safe space for participants to open-up and discuss sexual health, HIV prevention, substance abuse, and other issues affecting their lives.

Through groups sessions, outings, and program activities, a support network will be established that helps with self-awareness, accountability, and skills development that will assist participants in making healthy decisions.

If you would like to join, or just learn more about the program, please reach out. We would love to have you.

Party Wise

If you are struggling with the use of meth and you are not ready to access treatment, this is a program that can potentially benefit you.

Party Wise is a program intended to reach those at the highest risk for contracting or transmitting HIV. It was initially designed to provide risk and harm reduction strategies for gay men who are actively using crystal Meth but has evolved to include the transgender community.

Party Wise provides harm reduction workshops, one on one health navigation sessions and community events. The goal is to encourage active meth users to adopt safer sex practices and incorporate risk-reducing behaviors with their drug use. These additions can help decrease the possible rate of new HIV infection.

If you are interested in what we offer, please reach out and connect.
