During this unprecedented time, the Public Health Initiatives Department continually retools its efforts so our services to the community are not interrupted. We’ve revamped our social
media platforms Facebook.com/publichealthinitiatives/ and continue to service the community virtually. We have also begun the process of rendering services at home!
We conduct at-home visits to our clients each week Wednesday through Friday. We know there are obstacles that prevent community members from getting the services they need, but we are happy to provide HIV testing in the comfort of your home.
Please contact our office at 773-342-0855 to secure a slot in our testing schedule. Our testing staff will show up to your home fully equipped with personal protective equipment to ensure both you and our staff remain safe.
On Saturday, August 1st, our very own Javier Rodríguez performed as Jenni Rivera, thus initiating the start of our services in Chicago’s Boystown community. Beginning this month we will have a presence in Fantasy Night Club, located at 3641 N Halsted St. Our staff will provide condoms, HIV tests, and counseling — all free of charge. We are excited to meet our community in person! After the city of Chicago quarantine period we know many of you need some loving and we are more than happy to provide the tools needed to keep you safe.
Please stay tuned to our Facebook page for upcoming events.
