Women of Color AIDS Council
Our mission is to prevent women from acquiring HIV by providing them with education and opportunities which increase their prospects for becoming more actively engaged in preserving their physical, emotional, spiritual health and well-being.
WCAC's activities include street outreach, workshops, support groups, case management, individual counseling, referrals, as well as HIV counseling & testing. These activities focus on increasing self-esteem and feelings of self-worth in women whose lives have often been written off by both society and themselves. This sense of worth translates into feelings of power and self-determination resulting in women being receptive to information, support and connections to overcome their many challenges and transform their lives.
