We want to thank you for your desire to volunteer with Someone Cares in a crisis time when staff and funding are short. As you know the HIV/AIDS epidemic is destroying our community and there is no cure in sight. Volunteering with us, enables Someone Cares to continue to reach the LGBTQ communities that are at risk through our outreach programs. We appreciate you stepping in at a time of need.
The Behavioral Health Evolution Program (BHEP), which is accredited by CARF (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities) and DATP (Drug and Alcohol Treatment Program) Licensed, provides an outpatient multidisciplinary team approach in providing behavioral health and drug addiction services to the general population specializing in the LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) populations, through trained licensed professionals.
The Early Detection Intervention Clinic is created to alleviate barriers to early HIV/STD detection in the LGBT and high at risk under-served minority populations. This center opened in 2009 with the LGBT community in mind for a “One Stop Shop”.
“PrEP” stands for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis. PrEP is a way for people who don’t have HIV but who are at very high risk of getting it to prevent HIV infection by taking a pill every day. The pill contains two medicines that are also used to treat HIV. If you take PrEP and are exposed to HIV through sex or injection drug use, these medicines can work to keep the virus from taking hold in your body.
