Community Groups

Our community groups provide a safe, supportive and nonjudgmental space for individuals to pick up a meal or snacks, transportation vouchers, and to share friendship and resources. 

Rose Petals is Care2Prevent’s bi-weekly support group for female-identified individuals living with HIV. This group helps women learn how to cope emotionally, understand treatment adherence, and advocate for and educate others. The goal of Rose Petals is to encourage women to build upon the skills they have to live a healthy and fulfilling life.

Rose Petals meets on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday afternoons at 3pm mostly in-person with some Zoom thrown in. Contact Meera for more information at 872-242-8296 if you’re interested in joining.

Wind Down Social Club is Care2Prevent’s newest group, a youth support group for individuals between the ages of 14-20 that are living with HIV. This group creates a sense of community for the younger generations by allowing them to realize that they are not alone in their diagnosis. The goal of The Wind Down is not only to provide a fun, safe space for our youth, but also to give them the tools to be able to look towards their futures outside the scope of HIV. The group meets every fourth Friday in-person from 4:30pm-6:30pm. Parents/Guardians are welcome, but are not allowed in the youth room, and will be asked to meet in our parent lounge. For more information, call or text Jiorg at 312-598-6789.

Getting to Zero invites all individuals impacted by HIV together for learning and supportive sessions. We invite guest speakers and offer training opportunities for group members, including Mental Health First Aid certification, self-care, CPR, and substance use sensitization. Groups meet in-person on the first and third Thursday mornings from 10am-12pm. Call or text Meera at 872-242-8296 for more details.
