Bienestar has been serving gay, bi, and questioning men since its inception in 1989. Due to the lack of services available to the Latinx community throughout the HIV epidemic, Bienestar began removing barriers to resources and alleviating the stigma surrounding HIV prevention and treatment.
Unfortunately, health disparities continue to disproportionately affect the Latinx community. Our DeAmbienete programs bring equitable solutions to underserved populations through:
- Game nights
- HIV + STI Testing and Prevention
- Peer Mentoring
- Community Service
- Career-building Workshops
This HIV & STI prevention program supports men newly diagnosed or returning to HIV care. The program includes two individual sessions, community forums targeting viral suppression, and support activities.

Decisiones program staff and health educator
“Decisiones is important because it helps recently diagnosed individuals find community and linkage to treatment. We help people navigate their status and find peer-to-peer support for a happy and healthy life.”
If you have any questions or would to get involved with one of our programs, please contact us.
