J.E.W.E.L.S - Journey to Empowering Women through Everyday Life Situations: is a program that is dedicated to young ladies of color within the community. This program works with ladies who may be at high risk for contracting HIV/STI’s based on behavioral patterns. Ladies who may be exposed to trauma and feelings of hopelessness imposed at a young age by people, situations and places now have someone they can trust and talk to as well as their peers to make necessary life changes. The program will work to help get young women on the right path to advocating for themselves and learning skills to keep them safe from sexually transmitted diseases. Services offered range from individualized sessions, group sessions, linkage and referrals as well as Counseling Testing and Recruitment.
