Southwest Louisiana AIDS Council

SLAC 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 Resource Services Administration (HRSA), as well as other private and foundation funding.

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