|For 39 years Face to Face has been helping people with HIV/AIDS. Recently we have explored strategies to expand our impact in the region and to reach more people with our services. When COVID hit and we were forced to close our door, our team went to work going mobile. Our Prevention & Care services team did not miss a beat. There was no way that we could not continue our work. This solidified the urgency identified in our Startegic Plan to go mobile, and knew we would be making the greatest impact with a dedicated mobile van. |
The goal is to end the spread of HIV/AIDS in Sonoma County, and the answer is to begin our 39th year by launching “Face to Face-On The Move”- an Electric Vehicle Mobile Van that will travel throughout the county to deliver our Prevention and Care Services to under-served populations. With this van we will be able to perform rapid HIV testing, educate, initiate and prescribe PrEP; offer harm reduction services and care for people who cannot access our F2F office here in Santa Rosa.
TODAY WE ARE KICKING OFF OUR $250,000“ON THE MOVE” CAMPAIGNThese funds will help us purchase and retofit an EV Mobile Van, all licenses, registrations and insurance along with the programs operational costs for two years. Beyond the first two years those costs will be funded by fees for services which are contracted by local, state and federal government agencies, and from additional grants and gifts.
