Southwest Center (SWcenter.org) is Arizona’s home for affordable primary healthcare and wellness for Queer and LGTBQIA2S+ individuals
We provide affirming and inclusive services to promote well-being and advance health equity for diverse communities and all those seeking compassionate care – especially people of color, LGBTQIA2S+ and Queer individuals, and those affected by HIV.
We envision a just and equitable world where who we are is embraced in all spaces – especially in barrier-free access to health and wellness – leading each of us to live a full, rich, and authentic life.
One N’ Ten envisions a world where all LGBTQ youth and young adults are embraced for who they are, actively engaged in their communities, and empowered to lead.
Our mission is to serve LGBTQ youth and young adults ages 11-24. We enhance their lives by providing empowering social and service programs that promote self‐expression, self‐acceptance, leadership development, and healthy life choices.
Sonoran Prevention Works is the Arizona leader in harm reduction services for active drug users. It was started with a singular focus: everyone should have access to the knowledge, tools, and community they need to be safe and healthy. Today we’re committed to making that a reality at the micro, mezzo, and macro levels through street-based outreach, organizational capacity building, and state-wide advocacy work.
SPW has since its inception helped provide 21,393 overdose reversals, enrolled 461 participants in peer support, conducted 1699 HIV tests, trained 29,984 individuals in overdose prevention and helped to pass 3 laws affecting our community.
