Hope & Help began in 1988 as a small support group of a few friends who cared for a close friend who was experiencing of AIDS-related complications. The compassion and spirit of those friends lives on today. Since then, Hope & Help has grown into one of the most comprehensive HIV/STI service organizations in Florida, with a full medical clinic, in addition to testing, education, prevention, case management, support group services, and a syringe service program.
With Florida consistently ranking higher nationally than most other states for new HIV and STI transmissions, Hope & Help is driven by its mission to end the HIV and STI epidemic in Florida through comprehensive health education, prevention, testing, and treatment. Ultimately, Hope & Help’s vision is to see all generations empowered with the knowledge, resources, and opportunities necessary to live healthy and stay well.
