Project Silk is committed to member driven structures and offers unique pathways to service delivery on site at our youth drop- in center. Project Silk provides STI/HIV testing on-site to increase knowledge of undiagnosed infections; implements behavioral interventions related to positive adult identity development and sexual health education; skills-based programming for youth to actualize their goals; and linkage to medical care and ancillary services to promote overall wellness within HIV-positive as well as high-risk negative communities.
—Staff conducted 57 HIV counseling sessions
—160 youth visited the center
—100 youth participated in social and therapeutic counseling sessions
—50+ meals were delivered to prevent food insecurity
How You Can Help: Project Silk creates skill-building and recreational activities and provides food, clothing, and transportation assistance for our youth members, but we need help with getting tangible items to our youth and covering the costs of those community activities. Please consider donating today to help support our youth!
