HIV Services

We provide critical help to combat HIV/AIDS.

CPLC LUCES (Latinos Unidos Contra el Sida/ Latinos United Against AIDS) provides HIV prevention education and supportive services to people living with or at risk of HIV/AIDS.

The Centers for Disease Control reports that the rate of HIV infection for Latinos is three times higher than that of whites. At some point in their lives, 1 in 36 Latino men will be diagnosed with HIV. CPLC is committed to preventing new infections and helping those with HIV to live longer, healthier lives.
