Rouge AIDS Society (BRASS) serves as a testing and training provider to the state of Louisiana, with special emphasis on the
Greater Baton Rouge area, offering avenues which foster ethical, personal, social-emotional and intellectual development.
We believe these qualities are essential to making appropriate choices that will ultimately decrease the spread of HIV/AIDS
and other STDs, as well as increase civic responsibility.
Baton Rouge AIDS Society (BRASS) was founded on October 5, 1998. Like many agencies
of its inception, its grass roots began inside one of the bedrooms of a two bedroom apartment. Since then, BRASS has continued
to grow and serve the Baton Rouge and surrounding areas. Through the years, we have been able to reach thousands of individuals
through our outreach efforts and educational sessions. In 1999 we were recognized by the IRS as 501(c)3
nonprofit status. In addition, on June 9, 1999 we formally established a Board of Directors. Our adopted slogan is “Together We Can Make A Difference!”
Baton Rouge AIDS Society provides
services to the state of Louisiana with special emphasis on the following cities: Baton Rouge, Port Allen, Clinton, Jackson,
Gonzales, Plaquemine, New Roads, St. Francisville, Donaldsonville, White Castle, Prairieville, St. Gabriel, Geismar, Darrow,
Carville and Sunshine.

THE RED RIBBON!
By the end of 2001 an estimated 40 million people were living with HIV. You would think that it
is impossible to beat such odds. You may even say that AIDS is winning. But all over the world, people like YOU and other visitors to this
site, are making a difference.
So wear a Red Ribbon to support the fight against HIV and AIDS. Give us a call
for more information and how you can help the cause. Volunteer your time or make a donation.
It doesn't matter How Small
or How Large.

Are AIDS Service Organizations?
All around the world, community-based AIDS Service Organizations (ASOs)
serve as a primary source of help to people who are infected and affected by this deadly virus. Baton Rouge AIDS Society is
one of the many organizations providing thousands of hours of care and prevention to the community.
An ASO may
be the place that a person is first diagnosed with HIV. It can also serve as the link or source to provide every type of service
a person with HIV may need for the rest of his/her life. From the small three-person agencies to the larger multi-million
dollar budgeted agencies, ASOs have been helping persons living with HIV maintain a sense of dignity in their lives by providing
assistance in dealing with the HIV/AIDS pandemic on a personal and daily level.
Baton Rouge AIDS Society provides
a blend of HIV/AIDS education, referrals, counseling services, technical assistance, community education and volunteer training.
