Based in the 5 Points neighborhood of Denver, Brother Jeff's Community Health Initiative, provides HIV prevention and education, as well as direct services to people living with HIV and AIDS. Last year, the initiative educated several thousand individuals across the state; supplied thousands of free condoms and education materials; and helped people living with HIV and AIDS access housing, treatment and employment.
Brother Jeff's Community Health Initiative's mission is to reduce the disproportionate HIV and AIDS rate among African Americans and to enhance the quality of life for African Americans living with HIV and AIDS regardless of age, faith, background or sexual orientation.
Their community commitment is extensive and is demonstrated daily through the services they provide. It is not enough to identify problems...It is imperative to implement solutions.
Here are a few of the services they provide:
- HIV Education and Training
- Client Advocacy and Referrals
- Free Condoms and Prevention Materials
- Leadership Development
- Program Development
- Community Mobilization
