The new Colorado AIDS Project mission is to equitably meet the evolving needs of people affected by HIV through prevention, care and advocacy across Colorado.
S-CAP maintains offices in Colorado Springs and Pueblo Colorado. Today, the organization provides HIV specific programs and services in a 25 county area of southern Colorado The 43,065 square mile service area includes the counties of: Alamosa, Baca, Bent, Chaffee, Cheyenne, Conejos, Costilla, Crowley, Custer, El Paso, Elbert, Fremont, Huerfano, Kiowa, Kit Carson, Las Animas, Lincoln, Mineral, Otero, Park, Powers, Pueblo, Rio Grande, Saguache and Teller.
For 25 years, the Southern Colorado AIDS Project (S-AP) provided comprehensive and individualized care to men, women and children in southern Colorado living with HIV/AIDS.
In 2006, S-CAP joined staff and board members from Western Colorado AIDS Project in Grand Junction, Northern Colorado AIDS Project, Fort Collins and Colorado AIDS Project in Denver to discuss how HIV services could be maintained, if Federal funding was significantly reduced.
Ultimately, the four Colorado CAPs determined that a merged organization is the best move in supporting the HIV population. On October 1, 2011, S-CAP became part of the new Colorado AIDS Project.
Each of the regional organizations will continue to operate independently. Each CAP will continue to have the same name, the same great people, and offer the same great services. But each is now part of a unified effort, marching forward together to meet a rapidly and dramatically evolving need.
