WHO WE ARE

WHO WE ARE

Bienestar is a community-based social services organization based in the Greater Los Angeles area. Our focus is on identifying and addressing emerging health issues faced by the Latino and LGBTQ populations. Bienestar reaches these unique populations through innovative and compassionate peer-to-peer modeling that is 100% culturally relevant to the communities we serve. We have a diverse staff that meets clients with both understanding and acceptance, building trust and fostering a unique sense of community for those who use our services.

Bienestar's education and support programs encompass areas such as: HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention, STIs, mental health services, substance use and harm reduction. All of our services are offered to the community for free.

Currently, Bienestar operates community centers across Los Angeles County located in: East Los Angeles, El Monte, Hollywood, Long Beach, Pomona, San Fernando Valley and South Los Angeles. Additionally, Bienestar can always be seen out in the community, providing free HIV testing at nightclubs, giving presentations at local colleges, or sharing resources and information at health fairs and other events.

OUR MISSION

Bienestar Human Services is committed to enhancing the health and well-being of the Latino community and other underserved communities. Bienestar accomplishes this through: community education, prevention, mobilization, advocacy and the provision of direct social support services.

OUR HISTORY

Bienestar was founded in 1989, primarily as a direct response to the lack of resources for the Latino LGBTQ community in Southern California at the height of the HIV/AIDS crisis.
