LivWell Community Health Services is a non-profit organization providing comprehensive health and support services, education, and advocacy, as related to HIV/AIDS, sexually transmitted diseases and viral hepatitis. Quality health care is provided to persons living with HIV/AIDS or sexually transmitted diseases, support services are provided to HIV clients and their families, and prevention education and testing are provided to all clients, their families, and the community at large.  Within the community, we strive to prevent new infections of HIV and STI’s and reduce the stigma associated with these various diseases by promoting awareness, acceptance, and equality.

LivWell Community Health Services began in 1996 as Heartland CARES, Inc.; a client-managed consortium dedicated to developing a regional system of HIV services. We have since continued to broaden our scope of services to improve our community impact. Services at LivWell are provided to all persons regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, age, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, or ability to pay.
