Our street outreach team goes out into the community and gives out safe sex kits, HIV testing information, toiletries, RIPTix, and referrals for additional resources to the at-risk population.
Street outreach provides the community with information on how to stay healthy, protect themselves, and protect others.

If you're not afraid to stand out, then become a Street Outreach volunteer! Our Outreach workers are easily identified by the bright yellow backpacks they each wear.

If you have a great attitude, energy and most importantly, streetwise then come join us and contact Ray Joseph.

Safe Sex Kits

We distribute safe sex kits at health fairs, events, and at our Prevention Office. The kits contain safe sex materials and HIV testing information. Safe sex kits can be assembled at our office, at your home, school, business or organization. The time commitment is a minimum of one hour and can be arranged according to your schedule.

If you enjoy being out in the sunshine we would appreciate your help! AIDS Care Ocean State offers supportive and assisted living facilities designed to offer our clients a family atmosphere while providing essential care to encourage a healthy lifestyle. Rigorous medication regiments and various obstacles with health can make outdoor work and garden maintenance difficult for our clients.

Garden & Yard Volunteers support our clients by offering a helping hand with mowing, weeding, raking and planting flowers and plants. You needn't be a garden guru but hopefully you enjoy working outdoors in a fun and friendly environment.

Volunteers can make this opportunity as flexible as your schedule allows, whether it's once a week or once a month, we greatly appreciate your help!
