CLEAR (Choosing Life: Empowerment, Action, Results!)

CLEAR Program logo for HIV Prevention

The CLEAR Program offers free one-on-one counseling to youth and adults (16 years and older). The evidence based program assists HIV positive or negative individuals to take charge of their lives, be proactive, set and meet goals, learn ways to problem solve and address current stressors in their lives. CLEAR helps individuals understand their feelings and learn to become assertive about protecting themselves and staying healthy.

If you are you a motivated individual or would you like to become one but don’t know how, if you have life goals and challenges that seem hard to achieve then CLEAR might be right for you.

For more information on how CLEAR can help you, contact the CLEAR Program at 915-212-6595.
