Outreach

HEAT conducts targeted outreach and HIV testing to young women of color though it's involvement in the Young Women of Color HIV/AIDS Coalition and HEAT's co-sponsorship of safer sex parties and an annual young women's health summit. HEAT also conducts reproductive and sexual health workshops and testing at youth agencies that provide services for young women. HEAT targets young women who are in the juvenile justice and foster care systems and at programs that serve homeless young women, young women who have experienced violence and trauma, young women who are involved in sex work, and teen moms.
