What We Do
The purpose of Positive Life is to help empower HIV positive people through education and support by helping them navigate the resources needed for a positive life.
Our desire is to hear client's concerns, to educate, support and empower individuals with the knowledge needed to advocate for themselves and others who are infected or affected by HIV and AIDS. Our goal is to support the HIV positive people and help them find their voice in the Central San Joaquin Valley of California.
Positive Life is committed to advocacy for HIV positive people as well as to provide them with the skills to advocate for respect and empowerment through support and compassion.
What We Believe
HIV doesn't have to define who you are.
If you have HIV or AIDS, it is a disease that can kill. However, the disease does not define you. Your attitude about HIV will determine your life, how you live, and what you are going to do about it.
We believe that with proper medical care, smart choices, and the support of others, you can live a positive life worth living.
Who doesn't want that?
