The mission of the Drop-In Center is to provide access to information/education, resources and services in the prevention of HIV/STDs; to offer compassionate support services for persons affected by HIV/AIDS; and to support the groundwork for community building projects in a safe and confidential environment.

We provide free, confidential rapid finger stick HIV testing and finger stick rapid Hepatitis C screening by trained staff through use of the OraSure and OraQuick tests. The OraSure and OraQuick tests are highly accurate. The OraQuick rapid HIV antibody test can provide preliminary results in 20 minutes. There is no appointment necessary to be tested.

We provide a variety of community building and educational programs. Staff is available to come to your agency or facility to provide free prevention/education services and confidential HIV and Hepatitis C testing. For more information about The Drop-In Center and the services it provides, please see the menu to the right.

HCV Testing

We have recently started testing for hepatitis C (HCV) as well.  This test is a rapid test done with a small sample of blood.  The test takes about 20 minutes and can be done while you get your HIV test.  For a great recent article about HCV risk, click here.
