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 represents 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.
