Together, we can create a healthy Orange County for generations to come.

Create a Healthy Community Through Caring & Compassion

We are raising funds to build a dedicated LGBTQ-plus health center and create a healthy Orange County for all.

Since 1985, we have seen first-hand how stigma, poverty, cultural misunderstandings and other health barriers have heightened health risks for Orange County’s vulnerable LGBTQ-plus residents. HIV, of course, is just the most visible of those health inequities.

With many of Orange County’s LGBTQ-plus residents living at or below the poverty level, even basic healthcare is out of reach, let alone HIV prevention or suppression medications and mental or behavioral health counseling.

To eradicate HIV/AIDS in our community, we need to provide comprehensive medical and pharmacy services that meet the unique health and wellness needs of our most vulnerable members of the LGBTQ-plus community. Additionally, we need to do it in a stigma-free, welcoming space.

Our vision is a healthy Orange County for all and we are excited to be partnering
with caring individuals, companies and organizations to bring it to life.

Why Does Orange County Need an LGBTQ-plus Health Center?

LGBTQ-plus individuals are more likely to experience specific health-related issues. This may be due to their experiences with stigma and discrimination in daily life. Some LGBTQ-plus people have encountered such stigma and discrimination from their healthcare providers and most have experienced just a lack of understanding and empathy.

When this occurs, people don’t seek or ask for the healthcare help that they need, skipping important appointments, screenings or medications.

Some will stop seeing a doctor altogether and this is where the problems snowball:

  • PrEP isn’t prescribed and a new HIV transmission occurs.
  • A PAP smear is skipped and a cervical cancer diagnosis is missed.
  • Drugs or alcohol is used to self-medicate and conceal a mental health issue.
  • A minor dental problem becomes an expensive tooth extraction.
