Your Gifts Matter
Your gift to Cascade AIDS Project changes lives. We rely on the generosity of people such as you to carry out our mission to prevent HIV infections, care for and empower people affected and infected by HIV/AIDS, and eliminate HIV/AIDS-related stigma. Over 80% of donations go directly to programs.
All in all, last year CAP provided HIV/AIDS education and prevention services to nearly 15,000 people and coordinated wrap-around support services for 1,680 people affected and infected with HIV/AIDS in the five-county Portland metropolitan area. Here are just a few of CAP’s accomplishments our donors helped make a reality:
- CAP’s Kids Connection programs served 60 families living with HIV/AIDS, including 93 children, by offering programs as varied as help disclosing HIV status to schools, guardianship planning, teaching kids about HIV, recreational opportunities with other HIV-affected families, and a week-long residential camp for children.
- Working Choices helped 114 clients in their quest for employment through resume and interviewing workshops; networking events; a weekly Job Club; and Job Lounge, weekly “open houses” where clients can print resumes, use a computer or fax machine, and get advice on job applications.
- Testing for All provided rapid HIV testing and risk reduction counseling in CAP’s comfortable offices to anyone who wants it, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, or ability to pay. Last year, we tested 474 people. In addition, Pivot tested 1,856 men for HIV and STIs. Outreach testing for gay and bisexual men, including those in Clark, Clackamas, and Washington counties, correctional facilities, and more, reached an additional 509 people.
- CAP’s Youth HIV Education program reached out to 2,806 youth through youth-facilitated workshops and peer education, and served an additional 4,755 youth through outreach, including social media.
