Join us for our Champagne & Conversations Fundraising Brunch , in honor of World AIDS Day.
This year we will focus on HIV Prevention Today with Tomorrow in Mind . This event will feature
renowned infectious disease specialist Marye Bernard who will speak and lead a panel of
experts in a conversation on preventive methods and what it will take to change the perception
of living or dealing with (or being impacted by) HIV or AIDS. This event, held December 7, 2019
at the Cumberland River Compact (Bridge Building) in Downtown Nashville (2 Victory Ave
37213) aims to bring the community together, through what has become an annual fundraiser
for the organization.
With a mission to prevent the spread of this disease and provide care and supportive services
for those infected and affected, the organization provides support through outreach, education
and advocacy in communities of greatest risk. In addition to serving those in need, Street Works
increases awareness and prevention throughout communities served by promoting additional
services that include: HIV and Hepatitis C testing, Medical Case Management, Housing Case
Management, Nutritional Services, Emergency Financial Assistance and Early Intervention
Street Works is constantly working to improve services, care and access. As one of the first
agencies using a social network model, Street Works is actively engaged with at-risk individuals
to increase testing rates for HIV. Additionally, the organization is the first, in the State of
Tennessee, to be a designated vendor for the Syringe Service Program (SSP) which is an
authorized statewide needle exchange program, providing additional services to treat and
counsel those who inject themselves with drugs.
