Welcome to CARES!

CARES is Wellness NonProfit operated in Southwest Michigan with offices in Benton Harbor and Kalamazoo. We were established in 1985 by a group of volunteers looking to make a difference. We started by offering peer support to people living with HIV.

We’ve stood the test of time to become the only community-based non-profit AIDS organization that serves 10 counties in Southwest Michigan. CARES is the second largest HIV/AIDS service provider in the state and is well-respected by state departments and other non-profits.

Services We Offer

Our Prevention Team provides FREE HIV testing and health education across Southwest Michigan. Our certified team educates on HIV transmission, using PrEP/PEP, and HIV stigma.

Case managers support clients with insurance enrollment, medical scheduling, medical transportation, referrals ranging from food assistance programs to mental health care, emergency housing assistance, and more.
