What Is BLISS CARES?
BLISS CARES is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to save lives by preventing the spread of HIV, hepatitis, and STDs. We strive to serve everyone who walks through our doors, regardless of their ability to pay. Through our programs, we provide underserved patients with access to STD treatment and prevention, with a focus on sexual health.
Individuals eligible for financial assistance with BLISS CARES will receive complimentary or reduced-cost healthcare through a specialized clinic, called BLISS Health.
