What We Do
We started with a focus on educating the African-American community about HIV in order to address its disproportionate and growing incidence. Then, we extended our services by developing cutting-edge, culturally sensitive youth mentorship, family violence prevention, mental health counseling, case management, and other programs so that we could serve the community needs. SSHC purpose and legacy is in serving the people of the community. We actualize our mission of “Providing people with positive and healthy alternatives” through many programs and services.
Our experience, intuitiveness and unique ability to engage our constituents affords us the opportunity to develop and implement some of the most innovative and impactful prevention and intervention programs including:
Outreach Mobile unit with FREE HIV Prevention materials, HIV testing and counseling in beauty shops, partnering with local businesses to provide condoms, and more. In-School & After-School Youth Programs Onsite mentoring programs at our Help Centre and school based violence prevention by experienced professionals
