Help Send a Child to Camp Hope

 
 

 
“First of all, I want to thank you for the six amazing years I’ve spent at camp. You’ve made possible...most of my friendships...
and the joy I’ve gotten. Thank you!” - A message of thanks from a Camp Hope alumnus.

Established in 1996, Camp Hope was the first camp for HIV-positive children in Texas. Camp Hope provides HIV-positive kids ages seven to 16 from low income households the opportunity to develop important life skills needed to manage a life with HIV/AIDS in a healthy and secure environment. For one week campers learn the importance medical adherence, how to manage disclosure of their status in relationships and with their peers and how to deal with stigma - but most importantly, our campers experience a week of fun, barrier-free activities and quality time with their friends.

Campers participate in activities like fishing, obstacle courses, horseback riding and arts and crafts. They face their fears by singing karaoke in the talent show, climbing the rock wall or swimming to the deep end of the pool. The children also learn the importance of team work by canoeing with their cabin mates across the lake. At Camp Hope, campers form valuable, supportive, and lifelong friendships with other kids who share their struggles and by the end of the week they have an increased sense of confidence, a strong set of social skills and rejuvenated hope for their futures.

Our hope is that Camp Hope is not only a place for campers to have fun, but a place where HIV-positive children can begin to understand that they are not restricted by their illness and they can begin setting the groundwork for stable and fulfilling lives.

PrEP to Prevent HIV

AIDS Foundation Houston’s PrEP Clinic began seeing clients a few months ago. Little did we suspect that the effects of the program would be greater than the sum of its parts. Yes, we are getting people on PrEP, but so much more is happening!

Because the clinic operates in the evening when other clinics are normally closed, and because our staff has a reputation for being respectful and discreet, we are getting clients who otherwise rarely see a physician.

  
 
What is PrEP?

PrEP is a medical strategy that helps protect HIV-negative people from becoming infected. When taken correctly, the risk of getting HIV is 92% lower for those that take PrEP consistently.
 

During the normal screening process to begin PrEP, we have diagnosed and treated a number of people syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia—as well as identified new cases of HIV.  Insured or not, no one is turned away from AFH’s PrEP Clinic.

By providing access to PrEP, AFH is fulfilling our mission to reduce new HIV infections. The unforeseen benefits of serving those who don’t have access to medical providers also reduces the spread of all sexually transmitted infections, which makes our community healthier.  

If you have questions about PrEP, speak with an AFH PrEP Specialist between 9 am and 5 pm at 832-874-5380 or leave a message after hours and we’ll return your call. Learn more by visiting our two PrEP microsites: PrEPtoPreventHIV.org and WhyPrEP.org. The latter is now available in Spanish as well.

Please give to support the AFH’s work including the new PrEP Clinic, testing, education, and serving those who are living with HIV by providing permanent housing and nutritional support in our food pantry.
