HIV Counseling and Testing

An HIV test is the only way to know if you have HIV. The Commission offers FREE and CONFIDENTIAL HIV testing! You can receive your test results plus a counseling session in a matter of minutes.

Everyone is eligible for our services; no one is turned away. You don't need to have medical insurance to get an HIV test and your immigration status is NOT a barrier to access this service. Our staff is highly trained to provide anti-discriminatory, affirming and non-stigmatizing services.

Testing services are provided in-person or online.

- In-Person HIV test: In our location, you will receive a combo test for HIV, Syphilis and Hepatitis. In one sitting, you can rule out the possibility of having any of these conditions.

- Online HIV test: We will provide you an HIV self-test kit. Then, instead of traveling to our office, you will have a video appointment using your mobile phone, computer or tablet device. Our staff will guide you through the process.

How Can HIV Testing Help You?
If the test shows that you don't have HIV, you can learn how to stay HIV-free (HIV negative). If the test shows that you do have HIV, you can get medical care right away to help you stay healthy longer and get early treatment for illnesses that may occur.
