Who We Are
Building on a 38-year legacy, HIV Community Link's programs focus on prevention, education and support. Working in Calgary and Southeastern Alberta, our organization is dedicated to offering wraparound services to achieve long-term outcomes for people at risk of HIV and other sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections (STBBI) through sexual health and substance use. Based on a philosophy of harm reduction, we meet clients where they are, free of judgment, and with a goal to help improve their current situations.
At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, we adapted our services to meet the needs of our community, starting virtual services and delivery of basic needs and other supplies. We continue to offer in-person services and have increased outreach services to reach those who do not have the option to connect online.
Our work in numbers:
In the last year, we were able to address almost 14,000 needs such as basic needs, social isolation and mental health. Additional to our services, we made over 500 referrals to community services and resources. Our frontline workers had almost 10,000 contacts with registered clients and people met on street and community outreach. Our work includes:
- 154 educational/training presentations
- 53% more Naloxone kits distributed and 126 overdose reversals reported
- 14 HIV & STI testing clinics
- 1,111 online, street and community outreach sessions
Thank you for being the champions of our work: Empowering choices. Engaging communities. Ending transmission.
