Make Your Bid to Support Desert AIDS Project!

Now is your chance to not only get all the great items you want, but to do it knowing you are helping support our organization and mission. 

While not immune to the pressures on state and federal budgets, D.A.P. is as committed as ever to helping stop the spread of HIV in the Coachella Valley where the rate of infection is 400% greater than the national average. Our committed staff of volunteers continue to help us provide FREE AND CONFIDENTIAL testing seven days a week at locations throughout eastern Riverside County and the High Desert region of San Bernardino County.

The majority of our clients are low-income, medically-underserved community members. The Coachella Valley is characterized by a significantly wide disparity in income levels. While some communities in the region are affluent, low-income residents are increasing both in numbers and as a percentage of the total population. In our most immediate service area, more than 50% of the population is living under 200% of the Federal Poverty Level.

With nearly 5,000 clients currently in care, with more than half living with HIV/AIDS, we continue to see 30-40 new patients each month so your support is needed more than ever.
