About Desert AIDS Project
Who we are—from humble beginnings
Founded in 1984 by a group of community volunteers in the face of the AIDS crisis, Desert AIDS Project (D.A.P.) has been the Coachella Valley’s primary not-for-profit resource for those living with, affected by, or at-risk for HIV or AIDS.
Today, we are a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) with the goal of improving the overall health of our entire community, especially the disenfranchised. D.A.P. provides comprehensive, culturally competent, quality primary and preventative health care services including; primary medical care, HIV and Hepatitis specialty care, dentistry, behavioral health and social services all-under-one-roof.
We have never lost touch with our volunteer roots, nor our expertise and dedication to combating the AIDS/HIV epidemic. In fact, our donors and volunteers are essential to our growth and expanded capacity to meet the needs of those facing economic disadvantage. As D.A.P. continues to strive to become fiscally self-sustaining, we are so grateful to more than 400 volunteers who contribute over 60,000 hours of service annually – the equivalent of almost 30 full-time employees. In fact, two volunteers each worked 2...,000 hours in the last year alone! Our volunteers receive neither a paycheck nor other paid benefits.
