June 10, 2020 Boulder, CO — Boulder County AIDS Project (BCAP) has been awarded a grant for $7,500 from The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation (ETAF) in partnership with Macy’s. The grant will be used for BCAP’s HIV Prevention Education and Outreach for Youth Program.
This unique program provides sexual health education in classrooms, outreach at youth-focused community partner locations and events, and access to HIV testing and risk reduction counseling. BCAP’s program increases awareness; decreases viral transmission, and reduces stigma. Staff and trained volunteers provide medically-accurate information; harm reduction strategies including safer sex supplies; HIV and HCV counseling, testing, and referrals, including PrEP navigation. Staff prioritize outreach activities speciﬁcally targeting at-risk youth who may be at a higher risk of transmission. BCAP creates an inclusive environment and takes a person-centered approach to prevention.
BCAP is honored to be recognized for our inclusive and strategic efforts to provide direct services for people affected by HIV and AIDS. “ETAF and Macy’s are honored to support Boulder County AIDS Project (BCAP) to continue our shared mission of an AIDS-free world. BCAP is a caring and compassionate organization making a great impact in the lives of people living with or at risk of HIV and AIDS” said Catherine Brown, Executive Director of The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation.
Through their Cause Marketing Program, Thanks For Sharing, Macy's recognizes their responsibility to support disadvantaged communities and the needs of their neighbors. They are proud to partner with ETAF and have contributed to this grant.
