Changing lives, creating hope, making a difference together, with your help.

Changing lives—getting the job done, collaboratively.


Thank you for our 26 years and countingit really does take a village!


Changing lives.

 Your contribution makes it possible for us to reach out to the communities most affected by HIV infection and most at risk for poor health outcomes due to race, class, gender, and sexuality. As a small, 100% volunteer organization dedicated to providing health education and wellness programming for women living with, affected by, or at risk for HIV/AIDS, HOCC is completely staffed and operated by kind and compassionate volunteers. We have no paid staff—including our executive director who has served for nearly two decades. Most of our volunteer staff are experts in the field of health and wellness or experienced women living with HIV long-term. They are passionate about our work and are dedicated and deeply loyal to our mission. Read more about changing lives and getting the job done…


Creating hope.

We are grateful to have a community of women that have come together every month for the last 26 years to support each other. We are honored to have health care experts who devote their time and energy to provide accurate health and wellness information to empower HOCC women. And we are fulfilled by supporters like you, who believe wholeheartedly in our mission and truly make a difference in the lives of HOCC women. Together we can actualize our vision of empowering women living with, affected by and at risk for HIV—our vision for them to learn and live within a safe community, free of stigma and discrimination; our vision to help reduce negative health outcomes and the number of new HIV infections; our vision to help inspire, healthy choices in their journey forward.  Read more about creating hope—making a donation.
