You Have a Voice!
No matter who you are or what your background, EFA has something for you. Our staff is as diverse as our community and skilled at developing community from within. If you're a man or woman living with HIV, we welcome you to our family. Men who have sex with men, whether you identify as gay or bisexual, and regardless of your HIV status, we invite you to be part of a group as well. Everyone has a voice. Let it be heard.
