Thank you!



We want to send a huge thank you to all of our friends and family members for voting to help Youth Advocacy win a free website from HubRunner. We had votes coming in from all over the city, state, and country, and even as far away as Panama and Colombia. We know when we come into work each day that what we’re doing is making a real difference in our community, and it’s such an important morale boost for everyone to see so much enthusiastic support for the work we do.

Thanks again, and we’ll post an update once the new site is up!

2013 AIDS Walk Austin

Workers Assistance Program is participating in the 2013 AIDS Walk Austin organized by AIDS Services of Austin. Team Workers Assistance Program-Texas HIV Connection is honored to be able to raise money for Austin-area HIV/AIDS prevention efforts.

Since the early 1990s, Workers Assistance Program has been committed to delivering trainings and support to HIV outreach workers throughout the state through the Texas HIV Connection. We at WAP laud the invaluable, and sometimes thankless, service HIV outreach and prevention specialists provide our communities. Far too many people do not know their HIV status due to either fear or ignorance. Organizations like ASA work tirelessly to raise awareness about HIV disease in Austin communities.
