"Change a life, change a community"

YOU ARE OUR HEART AND HANDS

Are you aware that Florida ranks #1 in the entire nation for most new HIV transmissions?  Or how about Orlando ranking #2 out of all the cities in the nation for having the most new HIV cases?  One of the biggest reasons for these statistics is access to quality, affordable health care.  Giving and philanthropy at Hope & Help is all about the impact of access to quality, affordable health care on people and communities.  Your financial gift strengthens our ability to reach more and more people with much needed health care services and provisions for basic human needs, like food and housing.

OUR MISSION 

To end the HIV/STI epidemic in Florida through comprehensive health education, prevention, testing, and treatment.

OUR CAUSE

The goal of fundraising at Hope & Help is to raise financial support for our health programs and services that are focused on stopping the spread of HIV/STIs.  In order to fulfill our mission, we must acknowledge the conditions under which HIV/STIs often become prevalent in our communities.  In other words, through our programs and services, we address the basic human needs of people with HIV and those who are at risk. 

 

Our objective is to remove all the barriers that prevent people from accessing HIV/STI education, preventative resources, testing, treatment, and other forms of support.  These barriers can include food insecurity, housing, unemployment, unhealthy relationships, and mental health, for example.  These, and other barriers, are just a few of the situations that may contribute to HIV/STI transmissions.  But, for many of the people we serve, these are the life challenges that affect them.  As a result, it is incumbent upon Hope & Help to address the issue of HIV/STIs transmissions and the conditions under which they may come about.
