Moving Forward by F.A.I.T.H- Focused Action Inter-denominationally Towards HIV Testing

GAA/GREATNES through the F.A.I.T.H initiative, provides free anonymous and confidential HIV testing in houses of worship and faith-based organizations. Functioning like a mobile unit, We offer free anonymous and confidential HIV Rapid Testing in houses of worship performed by State of Michigan Certified HIV CTR Counselors. Our well trained volunteers and staff engage and educate the community about various prevention methods to reduce risk and stop the spread of HIV. For more information about testing sites and testing hours, please refer to our testing site list or contact us to request testing services for your event or house of worship. 



YAAHWAY (Youth Abstaining According to His Way)  
provides peer lead prevention based training sessions for at-risk youth from 12 years to 18 years of age and youth ministry leaders within and outside communities of faith. While focusing on abstinence, their non-judgmental approach meets young people where they are. YAAHWAY facilitates discussion sessions focusing on sex, peer pressure, and sexually transmitted infections. Some of these sessions are attended by both the youth participants and their parents or adult caregivers to improve the line of communication on these sensitive subjects.
