HEALTH & RISK REDUCTION EDUCATION...

Positive Efforts continuously reaches Houston's high risk African America communities with health education and risk reduction education, information and referrals. Although special emphasis has been placed on African-America women, PE also offers HIV/STD prevention services to African American men and Latino/Hispanic men and women.

Most programs activities for PE occur outside of the traditional office setting. Neighborhood and community outreach, education, and service delivery take place in or near client homes, community centers, parks, street corners, neighborhood businesses and night clubs.

Positive Efforts, Inc. (PE) is a Non-Profit, 501 ( c ) (3) organization servicing high-risk communities of color for HIV infection within areas exhibiting the highest HIV incidence rates in Houston.

PE's mission is to provide health education and social services to economically disadvantage African Americans with special emphasis on women, in a culturally competent, caring, compassionate and linguistically appropriate manner.

OUR HISTORY...
Positive Efforts, Inc. (PE) was established in 1999 in response to a growing need for African Americans to receive culturally competent and linguistically appropriate HIV/AIDS related services. Since its inception, PE has been involved in a variety of neighborhood and community outreach, HIV counseling and testing, and community mobilization activities in Houston. PE's Executive Director, Barbara Joseph, has been in the HIV field for more than 25 years providing one-on-one outreach and education. Ms. Joseph is nationally known for her commitment and involvement in HIV prevention, care, and social services.
