Proyecto Luz


Proyecto Luz seeks to lessen the impact HIV/AIDS has on Cleveland’s Latino community by increasing health, awareness, and access to resources.

Our programs create a safe and compassionate environment for culturally competent case management services, STD testing, prevention education, counseling, and spiritual support.
