Who We Serve

African Americans represent 7% of the population in Seattle and King County, but constitute 20% of those living with HIV.

Latinx people represent 8% of the population living in Seattle and 9% of the population in King County, but constitute 14% of those living with HIV.

Since our founding in 1987, we have focused our efforts on people of color who have been historically underserved by health and community services.

Our Comprehensive Programs

POCAAN's programs range from health and educational services, to counseling and rehabilitation for BIPOC individuals in the Seattle area.
