LCS offers a variety of HIV prevention services for people at-risk of infection. These programs target people who have high-risk sexual relationships and substance users/abusers.
LCSlients in need can obtain free food at the LCS food pantry. Others are eligible for job training and placement assistance.
Education and Outreach
LCS designs and implements state-of-the-art campaigns to raise awareness about HIV/AID testing, prevention, and the range of programs and services available to vulnerable populations. The LCS multimedia “¡Protégete!” (“Protect Yourself!”) campaign is the first in the nation to target Latinos aged 50 and older.
LCS joins with partner agencies and organizations to advance the fight against HIV/AIDS through popular special events, including Connecticut's annual AIDS walk and wellness fair.
