Reviews for Cascade Aids Project, Inc.
Our daughter - in her 20's, before going back to school for a nursing degree - had a half-time internship with Cascade AIDS Project from late 2009 through 2010, and we were so impressed with what we learned of CAP's services. She worked in the program supporting kids and families affected by AIDS and HIV. The support to families is educational as well as emotional and psychological. The team also trained other professionals to help them learn how to reach out and support the affected families and children of those who are HIV-positive. Of course, they also worked with children who are HIV-positive. Our daughter loved the experience of the once-a-month large family events - in part, the adults attended an educational session while the children separately did fun activities together. She also served as a counselor at Camp Starlight, CAP's residential 1-week summer camp at the Oregon Coast for children with HIV. She had a tremendously positive experience at camp with amazing children and wonderful co-counselors. It's nice to see our thinking that CAP is a very effective and efficient community resource confirmed by its ratings at Network for Good.
