Community Based, Collaborative & Innovative
EDUCATION, OUTREACH & ADVOCACY
We see every challenge as an opportunity, and this initiative helps us ensure that our partners are better prepared to manage the unique situations they find themselves in. We are invested in an innovative approach that empowers our community and delivers the support they need, when they need it.
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.
Most of our efforts pertaining to this program involve studying new approaches and developing innovative ways to implement them. We evaluate our success in this field by gathering qualitative and quantitative data, and using that information to measure shifts and changes from our baseline measurements.
HOLIDAY MEAL BAGS

PREVENTION & TESTING
SAN provides prevention packets for events, condom dispensers at local bars, partnerships for HIV testing with other local non-profits & soon, SAN will be providing HIV testing in house.
