Support groups meet to provide a forum for sharing questions, stories, problems, or feelings with others who are coping with HIV. Check with your case manager about which groups are currently offered in the community.
Peer Support / Mentor Program
This program matches a BCAP volunteer with a client to provide emotional and practical support. A form of structured friendship, these volunteers have gone through BCAP volunteer training and agree to make a one year commitment to the program. Volunteers may provide emotional support, transportation, or practical support with such things as grocery shopping. Mentors match a more experienced person living with HIV with a newly diagnosed individual to provide support, experience and information. This may be a one-time meeting or more extended depending on the needs of the newly diagnosed individual. Our volunteer services staff has also been successful in providing a variety of tutors to clients who have requested them, for things like English as a Second Language and GED preparation.
Pozluck – Monthly Client Potluck
The third Tuesday of every month, BCAP hosts a potluck get-together for clients and anyone living with HIV, from 6:00 – 7:30 pm at the Boulder office. Join us for informal sharing of food & good company. Bring yourself, your appetite, and something to share – make new friends! Check our calendar for upcoming Pozlucks and contact information.
