POZ Haven Foundation was Founded in 2013 and established as a grass-roots non-profit in 2017, they went forward with a mission to reach all communities, people living with HIV/AIDS and those at substantial risk of acquiring HIV especially Black women/women of color who are most affected. The black community is in great need of being educated from our adults to our youth. Poz Haven is always working to change the attitudes of others and how they view HIV. The stigma has pushed society so far away from the truth and how being diagnosed is not a death sentence. Poz Haven Foundation knows that the only way to reach people in the community is to go out and speak about HIV using varies avenues to reach individuals.
To accomplish this mission POZ Haven Foundation established a number of programs targeting a variety of methodologies that have positioned them to meet their goals and achieve their mission.
