HIV & STI Testing

We offer assessment and free testing, education sessions, referral to PrEP and PEP (as a part of other program activities), in a confidential environment and by an affirming team. Our free tests include rapid HIV and Hepatitis C testing, and testing for Syphilis, Chlamydia, and Gonorrhea. Our testing process takes about 30 minutes. HIV and Hep C tests require a small amount of blood through a finger prick. Syphilis is completed through a blood draw. Chlamydia and Gonorrhea tests are completed through a urine specimen.

The Morning Program

The Morning Program is a community outreach and feeding program for homeless and near-homeless individuals, focusing on HIV and substance-misuse prevention. There are no sobriety requirements for participants. Individuals attending two or more sessions can be eligible for bus passes, showers, clothing exchange and resource navigation. Individuals are also assisted in getting connected to resources and housing assistance.
