Southwest Louisiana AIDS Council

The Southwest Louisiana AIDS Council is a non-profit community-based organization supported by grants from the HIV/AIDS Program of the Louisiana Office of Public Health, Department of Health and Hospitals, and Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA), as well as other private and foundation funding. 

These grants provide HIV prevention and education programs, as well medical and social services to persons living with HIV and AIDS.  In addition, fundraisers, memorials, and other donations support the agency's mission. 

All of SLAC’s client services are confidential and free of charge.
