We serve the community with health information and support.
CARES was established in 1985 by a group of volunteers looking to make a difference. We started by offering peer support to people who were HIV positive.
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 well-respected by state departments and other non-profits.
The CARES Prevention Team provides testing and health education to more than 3,000 people annually who are at a high risk of HIV infection. We perform approximately 300 FREE and confidential HIV tests each year
CARES Medical Case Managers serve the needs of people living with HIV. Our Life Management skills are critical to those living with HIV, their partners or spouses, extended families and friends.
