Holistic HIV Care

Community Center

Desert AIDS Project's Community Services Wing, also known as the Community Center, houses many activities and programs including arts and crafts workshops, bingo and movie nights, a lending library, and "drop in" hours when clients come in to just hang out with their friends. The Community Center is also host to educational programs and classes designed to increase health literacy and empower our clients to participate in their own care. Listed below are this week's featured events, but be sure to check out the complete Community Center Schedule for our recurring programs and drop-in hours.

Tuesday, March 18th 1PM
Friday, March 21st 2PM
Tuesday, March 25th 1PM
