Our Mission

For more than 22 years, ACCEPT has devoted its energy to passionately advocating and serving  the under-represented members of our community. 

In 1995 ACCEPT began implementing  HIV Prevention Education to youth and adults at various community community locations. 

In 2006 we started working with youth implementing our Positive Action Drug and Alcohol Prevention program, at Washoe County School District Team-Up sites.   

Our bi-weekly HIV Support Groups have been ongoing since 2007.
