About Our Organization
The mission of Colorado AIDS Project (CAP) is to equitably meet the evolving needs of people affected by HIV through prevention, care and advocacy across Colorado.
Colorado AIDS Project provides a continuum of services to individuals living with or affected by HIV/AIDS through four regional offices throughout Colorado. Services include innovative, individualized services to those most in need, education for high risk populations, and advocacy for social and health care equity.
Regional offices include Denver Colorado AIDS Project serving the Denver Metro area; Northern Colorado AIDS Project in Fort Collins and Greeley serving the northeastern counties of Colorado; Southern Colorado AIDS Project in Colorado Springs and Pueblo serving the southeastern counties of Colorado; and Western Colorado AIDS project in Grand Junction serving the high mountains and western slope. Together, the CAP regional offices empower those living with or at risk of HIV to live healthier, enhanced lives by providing two different sets of services.
First, CAP supports nearly 4,000 clients living with HIV each year, through such support services as case management, mental health and substance abuse counseling, housing assistance, transportation, food bank, employment, and financial assistance. Each support service includes the ultimate goals of working with our clients to make healthy choices, increase their stability and access healthcare for enhanced, healthier lives.
The second way CAP helps people live healthier lives is by educating those at risk of HIV, and working with them to choose safer behaviors so that they can decrease that risk over time. CAP achieves these goals through a spectrum of education and prevention services, addressing the broad population through media and community education, and providing more intensive, therapeutically-based individual and group programs for those most likely to become HIV positive. CAP also provides regular free testing at each of the regional offices and through partnerships with medical care centers to ensure as many people as possible are aware of their HIV status.
