More than one million people in the United States have HIV, and thousands will die from AIDS-related complications this year alone. Due to the dip in services during the Covid-19 pandemic, the BRC is taking up work to provide HIV and AIDS services to our community.
Our programs provide support for people living with and affected by HIV and AIDS, 365 days a year. We offer counseling for individuals, groups, couples and families, regular support groups for those living with HIV, plus a variety of events, speakers, and informal social gatherings for positive people and their loved ones.
HIV AND AIDS PREVENTION AND EDUCATION
We provide one-on-one education and support to help LGBTQ+ people find the prevention methods that work best for them. We also work closely with community partners to provide connection to LGBTQ-affirming providers where people can access PrEP, PEP and additional resources needed.
Our work includes:
Referrals to HIV testing
One-on-one sexual health education and therapy
Linkage to PrEP, PEP and primary medical care
Insurance and navigation support
HIV AND AIDS support
The BRC is committed to providing ongoing support for the people in our community who live with HIV and AIDS every day. We offer a continuous cycle of support groups to help people at varying stages of living with the disease cope with the multitude of emotional and health challenges HIV and AIDS present.
In addition, The BRC provides one-on-one therapy and support, insurance enrollment, and assistance finding physicians with a long-standing history serving our LGBT community.
