We employ a harm reduction model to our everyday practices and believe in advocating for marginalized populations across a myriad of social justice issues. We treat everyone with dignity. This is a Safe Space.
Since 1985, it has been our pleasure to assist in the care of individuals who are infected/affected by HIV/AIDS and promote prevention by educating, providing free HIV testing, and spreading awareness within the community. Since 1985, we have expanded our services to encompass much more than HIV awareness & testing.
Counseling & Testing Services
Our team strives to provide safe and confidential screenings to the community. We provide FREE HIV testing, counseling and referral services as well as testing for Chlamydia, Gonnorhea, and Trichomoniasis. In 2019 Hepatitis C screenings were implemented.
Wellness AIDS Services ensures our clients are kept up to date on the latest technology and prevention efforts accessible. We provide clients with the resources to understand how PrEP prevents HIV/AIDS and how to access PrEP for those that meet the criteria for a prescription.
Informational Sessions (HIV/STI 101)
This 90‐minute information session is designed to present basic HIV information. Topics covered will include basic definitions, transmission, STIs, risk reduction and counseling, testing and referral. Info sessions are offered to our community partners to complement their services.
Wellness has partnered with multiple community partners to ensure free condom access throughout the Greater Flint Area. Please visit the community resource page for a list of distribution sites.
Linkage to Community Resources
Wellness Services' staff conducts thorough outreach and engagement with medical and social service providers in the community to build a strong network of community partnerships. Through these partnerships, our staff can effectively help our clients by providing linkages to the resources and services they need to.
