HIV/AIDS Education and Testing

In partnership with our community partner, Black Coalition on AIDS, the San Francisco chapter provides testing for over one-hundred (100) people. In addition, we hold an annual HIV/AIDS education workshop, entitled, "Understanding HIV/AIDS and its Impact across the Communities", as part of the Black Health and Healing Summit workshop series. We held several workshops and panel discussions, including: "HIV/AIDS in the Black Community; "Addressing Health Disparities Among Black People", and "Restorative Justice's Impact on Mental Health".

Job and Employment Training Program

Our job and employment training program provides year round job readiness instruction to twenty-eight underserved, low-income and unemployed participants, residing Marin, San Francisco and San Mateo counties. The majority of our program participants have limited education, few skills and a lack of strong work ethic necessary to hold a job. During the course of the year, we aid in developing and fostering educational values, life skills, leadership, strength, self-esteem, goal orientation and confidence in one's capabilities. Job readiness activities are designed to help participants set long-term goals and overcome barriers to personal success.

Women's Health

In partnership with California Pacific Medical Center's African American Breast Health Program, we advocate for breast health by recruiting Women who have no health insurance or are underinsured to get annual mammograms. The program provides free mammograms and free transportation to and from mammogram appointments. Qualifications include: 1. being a San Francisco resident; 2. Uninsured or underinsured; 3. Forty (40) years or older or younger than forth (40) with any suspicious changes in breast size. We have provided this information to well over three-hundred (300) women over the past year with about forty-five (45) Women following through with testing and treatment.

The African-American Partnership and the San Francisco Chapter of National Coalition of 100 Black Women held a, "Mini Connect: Health Fair Celebrating Women's Health Week 2014 at New Providence Baptist Church. Over thirty (30) Vendors from various community organizations, government and non-profit organizations provide valuable information on Women's health. The goal was for people to learn about available resources and services for Women, Seniors, Persons with Disabilities and Families with Children.
