Call Me Program

I got this information from a brochure at the CWAP annual conference. This is for teens and young adults who have questions about sex and the like. Pass it on to a young person (or if you're a teen, this is for you.)


If you have questions about your sexual health or HIV? Get help from a young adult just like you.

About the Call Me Program
The Call Me program is committed to providing peer support that educates and empowers young adults in South Chicagoland and NW Indiana areas to acquire accurate information about sexual wellness and testing for HIV and sexually tranmitted infections. We also aim to provide peer support and accurate information about treatment option to HIV positive persons and those with sexually transmitted infections.

Services provided by Peer Advocates
One on one mentoring whether you are newly diagnosed with HIV, don't know your status, or have had HIV for a long time.

Our peer advocates will help you to understand everything that you need to know about a diagnosis of HIV including transmission, where to seek treatment, medications, and how to tell family and sexual partners about a new diagnosis.

Finally, our peer advocates will help you realize the goal of "Living Positively." Living Positively means accepting an HIV positive status, keeping us with your treatment plan, and forming relationship relationships and community with other young people who are living are HIV.
