ALAC helps connect people living with HIV/AIDS with healthcare and other services

ABOUT

Alabama Latino AIDS Coalition

Together with medical providers and community liaisons, ALAC connects people with healthcare. They work with Latinx living with HIV/AIDS in Alabama, their partners and their families. They provide support to follow up with treatment as well as other supportive services.

Here are just a few of the countless ways they help:

  • Health fairs—including testing for HIV, blood pressure and glucose

  • Legal resources—including financial immigration services and free legal clinics

  • Healthcare and dental care—including medical interpretation and translation

  • Health insurance enrollment

  • HIV and health education

  • Mental health and substance abuse services

  • Domestic violence services

  • Housing assistance

  • Case management and referrals

  • Peer support and support groups

  • Transportation—to medical and/or legal appointments

  • Policy advocacy and leadership opportunities

If you’d like to find a way to put your Spanish or professional (medical, nursing, legal, etc.) skills to good use, or you simply want to find a way to love your neighbor or do some community service, AIDS Alabama’s Latino Outreach Program has plenty of opportunities for you to make a difference.

FUTURE

PLANS

ALAC plans to offer bilingual mental health services in the future.

Looking ahead, ALAC wants to provide bilingual mental health services through the Living Well Outpatient Center. These would be for community members impacted by HIV, including teens 18 and up, families and partners.
