    Project VIDA is a culturally-focused HIV/AIDS prevention and direct services community-based organization located on Chicago’s West Side. Project VIDA was founded by a consortium of volunteers in 1992 to address the unique needs and concerns of Latino and African American individuals at risk for or currently living with HIV/AIDS. We began with two co-founders distributing condoms out of a hardware store in Little Village (over 90,000 residents), then grew to have our own space, and now have two sites with dedicated and committed staff, volunteers, contractors, and Board of Directors. Project VIDA’s mission was newly revised in 2010 and is now “to improve quality of life and reduce health disparities in underserved communities by promoting self-empowerment and providing holistic health education and direct services.”

    The HIV Case Management service provides medical and supportive case management to clients living with HIV/AIDS; including food, transportation, referrals, medication adherence counseling, housing assistance, etc.

Specialized clinical programs include Blind Rehabilitation, Spinal Cord Injury, Neurosurgery, Radiation Therapy and Cardiovascular Surgery. The hospital also serves as the southern tier hub of the Great Lakes region for pathology, radiology, radiation therapy, human resource management and fiscal services.

    Hines VA hospital is a leader in treatment equality and is committed to providing quality care to all veterans, including the estimated 26,000 Illinois veterans who identify as LGBT. In order to provide culturally-sensitive and appropriate services to the LGBT community, Hines VA hospital emphasizes four core elements: 1) patient non-discrimination policy that includes sexual orientation and gender identity, 2) an equal visitation policy that allows any person the patient chooses, including same-sex partners to be present during a patient’s stay, 3) an employment non-discrimination policy, and 4) training in LGBT patient-centered care. Their efforts in promoting equality were recognized in 2013 by the Human Rights Campaign’s Healthcare Equality Index as being a leader in LGBT Health Care Equality.

    Hines VA hospital currently operates 471 beds and six community based outpatient clinics in Elgin, Kankakee, Oak Lawn, Aurora, LaSalle, and Joliet. Over 600,000 patient visits occurred in fiscal year 2010 providing care to over 54,000 veterans, primarily from Cook, DuPage and Will counties. In FY 2010 the budget for Hines was over $510 million, allowing them to provide a wide range of primary and specialty services to all members of the veterans community.

    The WSSS LGBT Seniors program serves LGBT seniors and allies 55 and up in the western suburbs of Chicago. We offer outreach, socialization, health education, education on local, state, and federal programs for seniors, case management, and mental health counseling, all for free. We believe it is vital for LGBT Seniors to have a safe and supportive space to be themselves without worry of discrimination. Because many LGBT older adults have experienced social stigma, prejudice, and discrimination throughout their lives, it is important that aging service providers attain the training, sensitivity, and knowledge needed to serve the growing LGBT Senior population. We believe that providing supportive, tailored outreach and programming to LGBT seniors can help provide individuals with a respectful, empowering experience that can enhance health and well-being. The WSSS LGBT Seniors Program will strive to create both specific programming for LGBT seniors and an overall agency culture which are culturally sensitive and respectful.

    Crazy Crafters – Every Monday we have our weekly Crazy Crafters night from 7-9PM. Please join us for fun crafting and conversation. Beginners welcome!

    Monthly Movie Night – The fourth Wednesday of every month (will change to the 3rd Wednesday of each month in April 2014) from 4-6 PM we host a movie night. Movies shown reflect an LGBT theme and speak to the experience of being LGBT.

    Ballroom Dancing – Please join us for a two hour ballroom dancing class. All skills levels, including beginners are welcome. Ballroom dancing classes recur every 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month from 2-4 PM.

    The LGBT Seniors Program now offers free case management and mental health counseling to program participants (LGBT Seniors 55 and up in the western suburbs)
