Bakersfield AIDS Project provides various services and programs for persons living with HIV and AIDS. The following is a brief overview...

Drop-In Friday's

Every Friday, nutritious food prepared and served for clients, supporters and friends from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. Activities, workshops, and support in a safe, welcoming, and comfortable environment.

It is a great time for everyone to gather and talk about what is going on in their lives, our community, and anything else of interest.  Drop-In Friday's are usually held at Ricky's Retreat. Sometimes we organize a special Thanksgiving and and/or Christmas Drop-In at Saint Joseph's Church in East Bakersfield.

Hygiene Program

To make a difference in the lives of our client's well-being who typically have to do without because they are living on a fixed income; items are collected from supporters and/or purchased to create hygiene kits/bags to be distributed on the last Friday of each month.

Speakers Bureau

Certified speakers living with or effected by HIV/AIDS are available by appointment to share their stories to help listeners understand the real impact of AIDS.

Camp Jessie Lee

This is a one-day summer camp event for children living with AIDS, or whose parents have AIDS; named after one of Kern County's first children to die of AIDS. Event includes parachutes, bubbles, cookies, swimming, lots of giggles and fun and the opportunity to forge new friendships and alliances in the battle against AIDS.
