Tennessee: Street Works Launches Project UNO to Combat HIV, AIDS in Nashville
January 29, 2013
Nashville's Street Works has begun a new program with a grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration called Project UNO, which stands for "U. New. Outstanding." According to UNO Project Coordinator David Long, Project UNO will serve young gay men dealing with substance abuse addiction, and will focus particularly on HIV prevention as well as care of people with HIV/AIDS. The project also educates HIV-negative men on wellness and prevention to ensure a strong life. Program participants will take part in sober social networking and journaling to strengthen their lives. Project UNO will monitor all clients for six months, encouraging them to concentrate on five fundamental factors to successfully move forward with their lives: sobriety, strength, status, self-purpose, and safety.
