Stamford CARES Launches AIDS Program

STAMFORD, Conn. — Family Centers’ Stamford CARES has started an early intervention initiative to warn about the dangers of HIV and AIDS. The work is being funded with an $8,000 grant from the Red Ribbon Foundation of Stamford.

Project Good S.T.A.R.T. will act as a bridge between HIV prevention and HIV care, a press release said. The goal will be to inform people about their HIV status with routine testing and get immediate treatment for those who test positive. Good S.T.A.R.T. stands for screen, testing, access, refer and treat.

Stamford CARES helps kids and adults with HIV and AIDS to lead healthier and more productive lives, the release said. The Red Ribbon Foundation raises money to fight HIV and AIDS.
