About The Hope and Help Center of Central Florida.
Our Mission: To save lives by treating and preventing the spread of HIV/AIDS in Central Florida.
Our Vision: A world without HIV/AIDS.
Our History: Since 1988, the Hope and Help Center has proudly provided comprehensive and compassionate support in Central Florida for those infected and affected by HIV/AIDS. As the premier HIV/AIDS service organization in the region, Hope and Help Center offers a full range of care services, as well as education and prevention initiatives that save lives, refute the stigma, and offer hope to all those touched by this disease.
