Who WE Serve
More than 60 percent of all HIV cases in the United States are in the Deep South and that percentage disproportionately impacts Black people.
For the past 27 years, HEROES has been working to create better futures for our brothers and sisters through HIV resources, free condoms, referral services, community groups and much more.
