HIV & Faith

BAO is not affiliated with any religious organizations; however, we recognize the importance that faith plays in the lives of many whom we serve.  


Churches, mosques and other faith groups provide a social pillar in many communities. Moreover being able to seek strength in religious faith is a necessary component of living with HIV for many. While HIV treatment keeps the body healthy, religion is often said to keep the soul well.


The following list of metro area faith based organizations are accepting, welcoming, and inclusive of all people including both HIV positive and LGBTQ individuals.  Please note that this list only includes the inclusive organizations that we know of.  If you would like your faith based organization listed please contact the website developer.
