Together with medical providers and community liaisons, ALAC connects people with healthcare. They work with Latinx living with HIV/AIDS in Alabama, their partners and their families. They provide support to follow up with treatment as well as other supportive services.

Here are just a few of the countless ways they help:

  • Health fairs—including testing for HIV, blood pressure and glucose

  • Legal resources—including financial immigration services and free legal clinics

  • Healthcare and dental care—including medical interpretation and translation

  • Health insurance enrollment

  • HIV and health education

  • Mental health and substance abuse services

  • Domestic violence services

  • Housing assistance

  • Case management and referrals

  • Peer support and support groups

  • Transportation—to medical and/or legal appointments

  • Policy advocacy and leadership opportunities

If you’d like to find a way to put your Spanish or professional (medical, nursing, legal, etc.) skills to good use, or you simply want to find a way to love your neighbor or do some community service, AIDS Alabama’s Latino Outreach Program has plenty of opportunities for you to make a difference.
