I have attended a few functions in the past sponsored by this organization at various venues and have always found the staff to be helpful in terms of providing information and/or support to those in the gay community and to others. If you have an opportunity to volunteer or support their cause it is certain one worth your time.

I spent time in the community passing out Aids awareness information and protection information. I also attend their monthly movie night/discussion group. Both are very interesting and I have met a lot of people needing info and help. I have to say, the movie night is my favorite thing because all kinds of different people come together and share their thoughts on each movie theme.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the group discussion with people and their experiences in life

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

have more movies/discussion and support groups.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the wonderful peoples i have meet and the one that have pass also

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

the kind of volunteer you can depend and are there when you need them

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

open a medical clinic for the poor

Ways to make it better...

they could show the movie in a theatre.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

getting more funds

One thing I'd also say is that...

every life save is a blessing

I love working with Red Hispana because the staff genuinely cares about helping people. I enjoy the events we sponsor, such as educational seminars, movie nights, and special events. Having the opportunity to help people know their status is very gratifying. It's so important to be tested and know your HIV status. I also enjoy the opportunity to share knowledge about community resources with those who need the information and services. Going out into the community and sharing information helps everyone become more knowledgeable and protected.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

spreading accurate information to combat stigma and misconceptions.

Red Hispana Florida is a non profit HIV Agency that targets Hispanics for help. They host this counties only Hispanic language Support Group, where the average age is 50 and meets twice a month. In addition, they perform outreach at ALL community events, fighting stereo types/ myths about HIV and also bring Seminars on Issues to long term survivors.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

direct referals of patients from Red Hispana Florida

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

add more experienced Board Members.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Its inventiveness in outreach and seminars

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated people, some of which do not have HIV.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

plan for expansion of services and not worry about every little grant.

Ways to make it better...

we had more experienced Board members.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding.

One thing I'd also say is that...

this Agency personnel that has been selected serves as a mission, not a paycheck.
