Positively Changing Lives
Caracole is Greater Cincinnati tristate region’s nonprofit AIDS Service Organization, devoted to positively changing lives in the fight against HIV/AIDS.
Founded in 1987, we started as a small, non-medical hospice for people dying of AIDS. Today, while treatment and prevention are available, the HIV epidemic has not gone away. It remains a significant humanitarian, public health and economic issue.
Today, Caracole works to end HIV/AIDS by providing:
Prevention: preventing the spread of HIV through community outreach, education, HIV/HCV testing, PrEP assistance, safer sex, safer injection and overdose prevention supplies, syringe services and treatment referrals
Housing: offering a variety of permanent housing support to prevent homelessness and to stabilize individuals and families living with HIV
Care: helping individuals living with HIV access the health care they need through medical case management and pharmacy services.
