Who We Are
Our mission: To reduce the further spread of HIV/AIDS among the Latino Community and other populations at risk and improve the quality of life and health outcomes of individuals affected by HIV/AIDS
Latino Community Services, Inc. (formerly Latinos Contra SIDA), is a non-profit organization based in the City of Hartford with twenty-five years of experience providing services to people living with HIV/ AIDS and people at risk for HIV infection. Latino Community Services (LCS) is the only Latino-led organization in the City of Hartford dedicated exclusively to providing comprehensive and coordinated prevention, education, and care services to populations at risk.
The staff at Latino Community Services offer services in a kind and compassionate way to people seeking to learn their HIV status, receive counseling and case management for substance abuse issues, or learn how to speak to their partners about reducing the chances of HIV infection. People living with HIV/AIDS can access van rides or bus tokens to get to medical appointments, receive help with maintaining complicated medication regimens, or use a trained medical interpreter to help them speak effectively with doctors and nurses.
Located in the south-end of Hartford on Wethersfield Avenue, LCS is a trusted hub of information and support for the minority community. We go beyond providing services directly to clients by training grass-roots and faith-based organizations serving African-Americans and Latinos on how to engage their communities to prevent the spread of HIV.
With your support, all of this is possible.
