Project F.O.R.C.E

In the battle against HIV/AIDS, Change Happens! believes that education is one of the most powerful weapons.  Project F.O.R. C.E provides the targeted communities with multiple levels of evidence-based interventions, Counseling, Testing and Referral Services (CTRS) to the target population to educate individuals to protect themselves and know their HIV status.

Project F.O.R.C.E team also known as the “Marines” provides counseling, testing and referral services in non-traditional HIV rapid testing to different communities in the Houston area using their highly equipped mobile testing van.

Community Promise is an evidence-based community-level intervention that relies on peer advocates to distribute role model stories that reflect members of the target population personal accounts about how and why they took steps to make a positive behavior change to practice HIV/STD prevention behaviors that affect their lives.

Video Opportunities for Innovative Condom Education & Safer Sex (VOICES/VOCES): A group-level, single-session video-based intervention designed to increase condom use among heterosexual African American and Latino men and women in non-clinical settings.
