We believe in the dignity and worth of every person and are committed to act accordingly.
We will be exemplary stewards of the resources entrusted to us to accomplish our mission.
We will be innovative, collaborative, and highly skilled at program and service design and delivery.

Strategic Intent

What we seek to accomplish:
We will boldly, proactively, and persistently respond to the changes in the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Central Indiana.

We will build on our strengths and become even more person-centered in our services and the way they are delivered by growing closer to those affected by the disease and by connecting community solutions so that no person in Central Indiana impacted by HIV/AIDS lacks the care they need to live a longer, healthier, more productive life.

With the same innovative and proactive person-centered approach, we will lead the community in the fight to prevent the spread of HIV.
