Latinos Salud is aiming high for this year’s Florida AIDS Walk & Music Festival taking place on Saturday, March 21st, 2020. We plan to fundraise $250,000 and here’s how to help us reach it.
Why support our team?
HIV is at last declining in almost every region, and for every population, except here!
• South Florida's Miami-Dade and Broward counties rank first and second in the nation for their rates of new HIV infections.
• The CDC reports that new HIV cases are finally decreasing for all groups except for two: rates are rising amongst gay Latinos, and younger gay people (ages 25 to 34, including gay Latinos).
• Latinos Salud is the only gay, Latino HIV agency in the state of Florida with free, walk-in services.
Now in our 11th year of serving the community, we serve gay Latinos, all persons living with HIV, and anyone who identifies as transgender, offering free prevention education, screening and linkage services from 11:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. from Monday through Friday.
This year our goal is $250,000.00, can you help us reach it?
Government grants help cover most--but not all of our costs. Donations help us close the gap, so we can reach further, and help more community members. Best of all, when you donate to our page, your donation will be matched 100%!
Latinos Salud's free services include: HIV rapid testing, STD testing, linkage-to-care services, Ryan White case management, anti-stigma campaigns, life coaching programs, youth HIV prevention programs, condom and safer sex supply delivery service to businesses serving the gay community, and outreach both on line and at late night venues.
“Salud” means health, but our locations feel anything but clinical. Clients and staff worked together to design our first location, setting the tone for all of our programs. From the moment you enter, you’re treated like family.
