Mission Statement

The Mission of Boulder County AIDS Project is to provide support, advocacy, and education to those in our community who are living with or affected by HIV and AIDS, and to serve as an outreach and information center to prevent the further transmission of HIV.

Organization History

Since 1985, BCAP has provided innovative, comprehensive, and inclusive HIV-related care and prevention services free of charge to thousands of people on- and off-site all residents in Boulder, Broomfield, Gilpin, and Clear Creek Counties in CO. Within BCAP's 4-county service area, there are an estimated 606 persons living with HIV (PLHIV); today BCAP provides services to about 262 PLHIV, approximately 43% of this estimate. [2] HIV Prevention staff and volunteers conducting HIV testing and outreach efforts in the community continue to target populations at increased risk of acquiring HIV, as BCAP service area trends indicate greater risks for men who have sex with men, youth and young adults, Latinos, and people who inject drugs.[3]

Testimonials

Volunteer Testimonials

"BCAP staff are truly remarkable individuals with passion for a cause not often displayed elsewhere."

"Thank you, BCAP, for all you do. I am humbly grateful to be a volunteer."

"I learned that HIV is more than just a virus. It's a virus that affects people. And I care about people."

Client Testimonials

"I moved to Boulder from abroad to attend graduate school. I had been here for six months when I found out I was HIV positive. I didn't know many people or have a support system that could help me understand and cope with my new status. BCAP provided me with the support that I needed and more. BCAP helped me meet my medical and basic needs and provided a community of support. I am grateful."

Prevention Testimonials

"As a newly out young, gay man I had a lot to learn about my life, my health and my happiness when it came to my sexuality. Atlas was there for me, not just to give me information, but to give me healthy role models, networking opportunities and friends. I don't know exactly where my life would be without Atlas."

"I came to BCAP because I was in love with an HIV+ man. I am HIV negative and I didn't see how we could have a relationship, but I really wanted to try. I owe my 8 year relationship to the people at BCAP who took the time to answer my questions. I am still HIV negative today."

"I was scared when I woke up and wondered if I had been exposed to HIV. I called [BCAP Prevention Staff] and [BCAP] was there to support and guide me through the process of accessing PEP, which helped me stay HIV-negative."

High School Classroom Testimonials

"Thank you for teaching us how to prevent HIV!"

About a Positive Perspectives Speaker - "So much of our education is learning from a book or powerpoint … Your courage in facing HIV and being willing to talk about it to a crowd is inspiring."
