Overview

Mission Statement

The mission of HCC is to help stop the stigmatization and discrimination in communities of color which have the highest incident rates of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections.

Background Statement

HCC initially started as an HIV/AIDS ministry within Concord Baptist Church in 2002 and then took the organization from a ministry to a nonprofit organization in 2006. In October of 2006, we became a community and faith-based nonprofit organization recognized in the state of Massachusetts.


Impact Statement

HCC has received numerous recognitions from the city of Boston over the past ten years. We developed a questionnaire survey within five developments in the communities of color (Roxbury, Jamaica Plain, Dorchester.) We were written up in the Banner newspaper in response to an event we held at Roxbury Community College. We have held events at the following churches: Concord Baptist Church of Boston, Charles Street AME Church, St. Johns Missionary Baptist Church, and Roxbury Community College. We have developed brochures in English, Spanish, Creole and French. We developed an AIDS Memorial Quilt to commemorate those who have passed on from the complications of AIDS and participated in the annual AIDS Walk held by the AIDS Action Committee and have designed our own t-shirts for this event. We also do community outreach at the Roxbury-Washington Park Mall, held in September. In the future, we aspire to have an independent living facility for those with HIV/AIDS.

In 2013, the organization continued to do great work in the community, reaching vulnerable populations, despite a lack federal, state or local government funding. David, the Executive Director of HCC, is visually impaired and he has continued to persevere, leading the organization and propelling its efforts to reach communities of color affected by HIV and AIDS.

Furthermore, due to HCC’s efforts, local pharmaceutical companies have recognized the need for further education about HIV and AIDS in the community and one in particular, Gilead Sciences, Inc., has formed a partnership with HCC.

David has appeared on Boston Praise radio several times over the past year and continues to speak directly to the communities in need through this and other avenues.  
 

Needs Statement

1. Funding to pay the executive director and hire additional staff

2. Acquire permanent office space

3. Secure office equipment (computers, phones)

4.  Develop a volunteer recruitment system


CEO Statement

As the current Executive Director of HCC, I have found that stigmatization and discrimination surrounding HIV/AIDS still exists in 2012 within not only the communities of color, but within the churches as well. In my role as Executive Director, I have the opportunity to give back to the community in which I live. This position has been a challenging and enlightening experience and has given me the opportunity to educate the people of color within the Boston region. Doing this work has given me, not only the courage, but the education on HIV. My personal mission is to decrease the infection rate of HIV and to bring a better understanding of basic HIV facts to the communities of color in Boston.

Programs

Community Outreach, Awareness, and Fundraising

Twice a year, in March and September, we visit the Washington Park Mall in Roxbury, where we have a table set-up to discuss HIV, AIDS, abstinence, and Hepatitis C.   We also sell homemade baked goods to raise money to distribute foods to those with HIV and AIDS through our holiday food program.  We reach out to local businesses serving Roxbury, Dorchester, Mattapan, Lower Roxbury, and Jamaica Plain to see if businesses would like to donate or display brochures to share our services and message.
 
We have also created a memorial AIDS quilt to honor those who have passed from complications of AIDS, which we have been continuing to add to as families want to honor their loved ones.   
Budget  $5,000.00
Category  Diseases, Disorders & Medical Disciplines, General/Other
Population Served People/Families of People with HIV/AIDS Adults
Program Short-Term Success  Our goal is outreach, education, awareness, intervention and prevention of HIV and AIDS.
Program Long-Term Success  We have had participants in our holiday basket program participate in telling their story which truly is the full circle of long-term success for our program.  Our goal is outreach, education, awareness, intervention and prevention of HIV and AIDS.
Program Success Monitored By  Success is monitored by feedback from the community we serve. 
Examples of Program Success  We helped a grandmother to be more educated on AIDS, which improved her relationship to her grandson.  She learned how AIDS was affecting him and how to better work with helping him. We have also reached out to the deaf community.  We also have people come in and share testimony with the community at the National Week of Prayer for the Healing of AIDS. We have also at the same event had eight people tested during the event for HIV/AIDS.  We perform testing during our events when possible.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

One of the challenges that the organization faces is getting the involvement of churches in the National Week of Prayer event. We also face the additional challenge of community and volunteer involvement in our events. Though we do have a committed group of volunteers, we could always use more.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

--

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

--

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

--

5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
