ABOUT

The Life Line Project is a SAMHSA funded program of the Cobb/Douglas Community Services Boards designed to help to stop the spread of HIV and Hepatitis B and C among heterosexual African Americans with substance related disorders.

We use small group level gender specific HIV risk reduction behavioral intervention models in a non-clinical setting integrated with both residential and outpatient substance abuse treatment programs.

Our Task:

The LifeLine Project is tasked to address the disparate impact that HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis and stigma has on the African American community and especially those with substance related disorders.  We work to increase awareness and education prevention among our target population and the community at large by working with various treatment centers, faith based, private, civic, and nonprofit organizations.

Some of our services include:

  • FREE Confidential Rapid HIV Testing.
  • FREE Condoms and Educational Materials/Pamphlets.
  • FREE Education and Prevention Sessions.
  • FREE HIV Prevention and Support.
  • FREE Seminars to Help Reduce Stigmatizing Behaviors.
  • Free Testing and Education Services for Community Health Fairs, Health & Wellness Events, Community Based Organizations, and Faith Based Organizations.
  • No Appointment Necessary.
  • Walk Ins Welcome.

But, only you have the power to stop the spread of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases.

So do your part:

  • Get Educated– Share our information with others to educate and raise awareness of the impact of HIV among others within your community.
  • Get Tested– The only way to know your status is to get tested.  Contact the LifeLine Project or use  https://locator.aids.gov/ to find a FREE testing location near you.
  • Get Involved– Contact the LifeLine Project or your local community organizations to volunteer and get involved and learn more about HIV.
  • Get treated– If you or someone you know is living with HIV, contact the LifeLine Project or use http://aidsvu.org/treatment-sites-or-care-services/ to help find the right treatment resources.
