Location: Seattle, Washington

Status: In progress

Type: Interior Remodel 

Expected Impact: 

Project Managers: Taylor Arndt and Jaci Hayden

Overview

This is a 30/30 project that consists of renovations and improvements of the support group room. Before, the room was very dark, poorly ventilated, and cramped. With the updates, BABES will be able to host more women.

Project Impact:

This project will provide a safe, welcoming space for the BABES Network to have meetings with peer advocates, host support groups, and provide HIV and self care education. The women will be entering into a safe space where they can share their hurdles and their achievements while living HIV positive. The community in the new support group room will help them feel more supported and less stigmatized by living with HIV.
