Our Mission Statement

POZabilities is a volunteer effort to reduce isolation, depression and stigma among individuals in San Diego who are infected and affected by HIV through education, outreach, and networking.

Our Values

POZabilities envisions an HIV+ community where social support is strong, isolation is rare, where HIV prejudice and discrimination are eliminated, and where HIV+ individuals live healthy and fulfilling lives.

We Aspire To Be

Forward thinking, collaborative, and willing to engage with the community we serve. Instrumental in efforts to build a community that has the information, support, and mentor-ship to lead healthy and fulfilled lives.

A Local Organization

POZabilities directs it efforts to those living in the City and County of San Diego, specifically to:

    • Provide current information, referrals, and forums on relevant issues in particular, information dealing with health promotion and significant life issues to empower those infected and affected by HIV/AIDS.
    • To promote a positive image of people living with HIV/AIDS, with the aim of eliminating prejudice, isolation, stigmatization, and discrimination.
    • To maximize our current efforts, we seek to collaborate with other non-profit organizations that qualify under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
    • To provide activities and events for HIV+ individuals in a safe alcohol and drug-free environment for the purpose of relieving isolation and depression.
