THE HEROES STORY
HEROES was founded in 1995 after struggling within a healthcare system that constantly said 'no' to the needs of women and children with HIV/AIDS. The Office of Women's Health provided our seed money--a $25,000 grant. Over 20 years later HEROES programs have touched the lives of more than 10,000 people affected by HIV and AIDS in the rural South.
HEROES brings lifesaving services and assistance to those who are impacted by HIV in the rural South and education to the community. Our outreach programs, retreats and educational initiatives are tailor-made for the issues we face in Northeast Louisiana.
