The Laurel Foundation is a comprehensive provider of educational and support programs for children, youth and families living with HIV/AIDS. We serve over 540 low-income, at-risk participants annually.
The Laurel Foundation’s programs tackle the emotional and social challenges of HIV/AIDS by constructing environments that support the mental and physical welfare of the participants. Our programs give participants the tools to build self-sufficient, productive, healthy lives.
