|After two decades, AIDS is not over, there continues to be no cure. Colorado AIDS Project was founded in 1983 with a mission of improving lives affected by HIV & AIDS and to prevent HIV infection. Colorado AIDS Project serves the Denver-Metro area and the surrounding counties (Adams, Arapahoe, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas and Jefferson).

Colorado AIDS Project serves more than 1,600 clients each year, through such services as case management, bilingual case management, mental health and substance abuse counseling, HIV prevention counseling, support groups, food bank, housing, health insurance assistance, and transportation and financial assistance.
Colorado AIDS Project also maintains an emphasis on prevention of new infections in high-risk communities, focusing on youth, men who have sex with men, Communities of Color and people living with HIV/AIDS. Colorado AIDS Project reaches an estimated 35,000 people a year through community outreach, education and prevention programs in English and Spanish that place a specific emphasis on the behaviors that put persons at an increased risk for HIV.
