WHO WE ARE
Mujeres Unidas is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in San Antonio, Texas. Driven 100% by volunteers, our goal is to empower local women and Latinx communities affected by HIV/AIDS and other health concerns.
To provide education, resources, and support to local women and Latinx communities living with or affected by HIV/AIDS.
WHAT WE DO
Every day, we work to eliminate stigma associated with HIV/AIDS by educating the public on various topics associated with the virus. Similarly, we offer prevention resources to local communities in both English and Spanish.
Most importantly, we support those living with HIV/AIDS through a comprehensive network of local agencies to provide access to care and an improved quality of life.
We accomplish these goals through the following means:
Originally known as Mujeres Unidas Contral el SIDA, our organization was founded on World AIDS Day, December 1, 1994, by former Executive Director, Yolanda Rodriguez-Escobar. Her vision was to fill the gaps in services for Latinas living with HIV or directly impacted by HIV/AIDS.
