The primary focus of our work is targeted towards local Idaho communities with high concentrations of low-income Latino and immigrant families in need of health, education, and affordable family-based immigration services.
We offer free HIV, Hepatitis C & Syphilis testing in health regions 3, 4 & 5 in Idaho. We perform testing at our office and at mobile events.
