In 1996, the Men of Color Health Awareness Project emerged as an organization that specifically addressed HIV/AIDS health concerns that were affecting Black and Latino gay men. We have grown into the MOCHA Center that now provides prevention programs, support services for People Living with HIV/AIDS, advocacy, capacity building, and much more. Our reach has also expanded to people of color, youth, women, and transgender communities. All of our services are conducted in a culturally sensitive manner, which is both confidential and non-judgmental.
