HIV Education Risk Reduction
The Healthy Alternatives for Reducing the Risk of HIV Infection - HARRP project targets men and women at sexual risk who may be dual diagnosed, at risk for HIV or STDs, or experience substance abuse. Women are invited to participate in 4 session- HIV health education/risk reduction education, as well as One-on-One health education counseling. Sessions and One-on-Ones are offered throughout the year at various sites in the Los Angeles area. Sites currently include:
- Center for Community Health (Downtown Los Angeles)
- Mini Twelve Step Solutions Family Resource Center (Compton)
- Covenant House Los Angles (Hollywood)
The program provides an individualized behavior change plan for each participant based upon an assessment of his/her readiness to change with respect to HIV risk behaviors. The plan focuses on setting & meeting small, realistic goals toward behavior change as well as reducing or extinguishing risk-taking behaviors.
Clients may receive referrals, a certificate of completion and gift cards for completion of sessions. If you would like to join us or have a site you are interested in us coming to, contact the program coordinator.
