Rebuilding All Goals Efficiently, Inc. (RAGE), as part of its ‘one point of entry’ initiative for consumer needs, has added educational outreach and testing referral services for the HIV/AIDS community and those at risk for HIV/AIDS under a Ryan White Part B grant program.
Kelly and Matt directly facilitate the RAGE program in conjunction with community partners and resources within the Southern Nevada area. They create and present educational outreach programs, provide at-risk individuals with information on discrete testing opportunities and participate in special events within the community in order to promote the benefits of early testing.
In the event of positive results after testing – our program will help to ensure HIV/AIDS sufferers are aware of and offered the means to understand that it is controllable, the hardships are manageable, and that they can be empowered to live with dignity, respect and have the ability to maintain a quality of life independently.
There are many resources available to those with HIV/AIDS from state and federal programs and the intention of the program is to test those at risk, educate and help to provide resources to those affected.
