Positive

When living with HIV/AIDS, it is important to take care of mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual needs. OUTSaskatoon ascribes to a harm reduction perspective, where we strive to ‘meet people where they are at’ and to offer a range of services in a safe and non-judgmental environment.  

We are able to support individuals who are living positive through a variety of ways:

  • Our drop-in centre is a comforting and safe space to visit
  • Our library contains HIV/AIDS resources and we also have up to date HIV pamphlets on varying topics
  • OUTSaskatoon staff are trained in peer support and are here to lend a listening ear
  • We operate a peer support line (1-800-358-1833)
  • OUTSaskatoon provides short-term counselling (up to six sessions) for LGBTQ individuals and their families
  • Our Two-Spirit Coordinator is dedicated to HIV and Two Spirit communities and provides cultural support
  • Every Thursday night from 5-8pm our queer & ally sexual health clinic provides rapid HIV testing as well as testing for sexually transmitted infections. All testing is free and confidential
  • OUTSaskatoon is a distribution point for the Good Food Box which provides top quality, nutritious food at an affordable price
  • All of the programing and activities at OUTSaskatoon are inclusive to everyone and are provided in a safe environmen

We are always looking for volunteers and would love to have you as part of our organization. Please contact us if you have any ideas about how we can provide better services to people who are positive.
