Community Based, Collaborative & Innovative
EDUCATION, OUTREACH & ADVOCACY
At SAN, we continue to provide education, outreach and advocacy every day. Through our community events, speaking to college classes, providing condom packets and support to our HIV/AIDS community, SAN gives back.
Through our participation in Community Events, we have the potential to make a real and positive change in the community. This is one of our key areas of focus here at SAN, and a source of much success for our organization. SAN participate in many PRIDE events, Spokane AIDS Walk, World AIDS Day and many other community events.
SAN, in partnership with Spokane Regional Health District, established an emergency support fund in 2019. These funds can be used for emergency needs like a bed for someone going from homeless to housed, a cell phone for a diabetes patient or a rental deposit. SAN works with SRHD provide these support dollars where needed the most.
SAN PANTRY & HOLIDAY BAGS
SAN provides the PLWHIV community a place to gather, share a meal and take home nutritious food pantry bags. SAN works with local partners to make sure the Holiday Bag Distribution event is a huge success, year after year.
