Street Works Is Nashville HIV Care And Prevention
Street Works’ mission is to prevent the spread of HIV disease and provide care and supportive services for those infected and affected through outreach, education, and advocacy in communities of greatest risk.
Street Works is one of Tennessee’s leading HIV service organizations, providing free, confidential HIV testing and supportive services to persons living with HIV disease in the Nashville/Middle Tennessee area since 1997. Street Works is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit which receives state, local, and federal funding to provide the following services: prevention, education, HIV and Hepatitis C testing, Medical Case Management, Housing Case Management, Nutritional Services, Emergency Financial Assistance and Early Intervention Services. In addition, Street Works offers services to young African American Men who have sex with men (MSM) through Project UNO, U New and Outstanding, which is located in Midtown. Street Works has two other Nashville locations, James Cayce Homes in East Nashville and Tony Sudekum Homes in South Nashville. Street Works Prevention Staff work the streets at night to prevent and reduce HIV disease and STIs on the inner city streets of Nashville. Our motto is: “We doze but we never close.” As an organization, we uphold this motto to be there for our community no matter what the time or place.
