We provide financial assistance to men, women, and children living with HIV/AIDS in Wyoming.

For over 15 years, we have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for men, women, and children living with HIV/AIDS in the state of Wyoming. To date we have raised over $200,000 to assist HIV/AIDS positive people with their medical, dental, vision, and mental health care costs. Your generosity has helped countless people avoid eviction, gain access to purified water, and pay for expenses that insurance or other assistance programs don’t cover.


We view our clients as people first and foremost. Everyone deserves dignity.


We pay costs that insurance and assistance programs don't cover.


We work to raise awareness, prevent new infections, and reduce risks.
