About the Stonewall Project:
The Stonewall Project Provides a full range of counseling services that integrate substance use, mental health, and HIV from a participant-centered perspective. Anyone is welcome in our treatment program, regardless of the status of their drug use, regardless of their primary concerns or goals.
The best way to fight HIV is to know your status. A simple test can determine if you are infected with the virus.
Our diverse programs help thousands of people every year. From testing to prevention to care, our services assist communities where need is greatest.
