Kentucky: Church, Hope Center Band Together Against HIV/AIDS

August 6, 2010

An HIV/AIDS awareness event will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Aug. 14 at Lexington's Douglass Park. The outreach is being presented by St. Paul African Methodist Episcopal Church and the Hope Center, a community agency assisting homeless and at-risk persons. In addition to food, live music, and inflatables for the kids, the outreach will feature rapid-result HIV testing. In 2008, the Hope Center received a five-year grant from the Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration to expand free testing, prevention education, and treatment for blacks, Hispanics, and substance abusers, said Amber Cronen, project director for its HIV grants.
