Protect Yourself, Protect Your Community

 

An HIV diagnosis doesn’t have to stop you from living a long and healthy life. With the proper treatment and care, you can live as long as someone who doesn’t have HIV.

 

The best way to fight HIV is to know your status. AIDS Outreach offers free rapid HIV and Syphilis testing to anyone in Gallatin, Park and Madison Counties.

 

For those who are HIV+, treatment should begin as soon as possible. We’ll help connect you with a healthcare provider, assist you in finding financial resources, and offer an emotional support system for you and your family or caregiver.

 

You don’t have to manage HIV on your own, we’re here for you.

Why We Do It

There is a tremendous need for Montana residents to get tested for HIV, especially those in high-risk populations.

Federal and state assistance for HIV/AIDS support has drastically decreased while the cost of living and medications have increased. Though new medications have greatly extended the lives of those living with HIV/AIDS, the cost of many of these medications is astronomical and is simply out of reach for many.

Even with state and federal funding programs the need for many basic services for people living with HIV/AIDS remains unmet.

AIDS Outreach exists to fill the gap of unmet needs by providing support groups, transportation assistance to and from medical appointments, grocery vouchers, companionship and hope.

 

Our Mission Statement:

Dedicated to empowering people and communities affected by HIV
through testing, prevention, support and education,
