We provide health resources, prevent the spread of disease, and save lives.

World AIDS Day 2018
Thanks to YOU…
We were able to raise $1,000 to support our programs and services.
This year, our World AIDS Day Memorial and Silent Auction was an intimate gathering of about 50 people. Red Project staff, clients, participants, and community members came together to listen to various speakers. We all gained new knowledge and perspectives thanks to the diverse line-up of speakers – volunteers and clients from around the world shared their stories and how the HIV/AIDS epidemic affects their home countries.

What else is going on at Red Project?
Last year we…
Distributed over 50,000 condoms! Condom distribution is done as a preventative measure. We focus on distrubuting condoms to key populations who are statistically shown to have a higher risk of contracting HIV.
Distributed more than 300,000 syringes and recorded over 50 overdose reversals this year.
Our syringe access and overdose prevention programs allow participants to figure out what recovery means to them and promote positive health choices.
We’ve acquired addtional office space and will be expanding many of our direct client/participant services there – don’t worry, it’s right next to our main office! We will be having an open house there at the end of the month, so be on the look out for more information!
Save the date!
In honor of Black History Month and National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, we are hosting a free event for the community – we will show the short film 90 Days and have table talks on how HIV/AIDS affects the Black community. Be sure to save the date and not miss out on great conversation, food, and experience.
More details to come!
