With HIV infection rates moving at an alarming speed among young people in Jacksonville, JASMYN Board and Executive leadership determined that expanding the level of service offered to those living with HIV and working to prevent its spread is the highest priority for the organization through 2018. To achieve an AIDS-Free Generation in Jacksonville, JASMYN will expand its proven, targeted education and intervention programs to address the HIV epidemic in Northeast Florida for LGBTQ young people at the greatest risk, including African-American young men and youth experiencing homelessness.
Thanks to the Delores Barr Weaver Fund at the Community Foundation for Greater Jacksonville, every donation to JASMYN’s #AIDSFreeJAX campaign will be matched dollar for dollar! Show your support today: donate here on our secure server – any amount will make a world of difference.
“Our young people deserve to be able to live full healthy lives, without the threat of HIV/AIDS. JASMYN’s support of LGBT youth is critical to ensuring that this next generation of youth can fulfill their potential, and I hope this matching grant encourages others to provide more resources so that they can succeed.”
