Get Out And Live (GOAL)
Program The GOAL program is a program designed for those who are living with HIV/AIDS to partner with the Yellowstone AIDS Project and receive support and assistance in reaching their goals. Our hope is to empower people to continue to live with power, grace and dignity while facing the challenges that HIV presents.
This program offers Free and Confidential individual and group counseling (support groups) with a strengths building approach. This form of counseling is commonly used to address grief, communication, relationships and many other life challenges.
This program also offers financial assistance with items such as utility bills, medical co-pays and in accessing other services in the community. This program is primarily for people living within Yellowstone County.
