As with many nonprofits, AGUILAS/El Ambiente relies on the strength and commitment of its volunteers to move the organization forward. We help our members navigate the physical, emotional and social challenges faced by the Bay Area’s Latinx population. We do this by minimizing the impact of HIV/STIs on the community and by providing vital mental health support through 1-on-1 and group services.
