The Damien Center was established in 1987 to respond to the growing AIDS crisis in Indianapolis. Initially staffed entirely by volunteers, the Center has grown into the largest HIV/AIDS service organization in Indiana and is recognized nationally for its leadership and innovation in care and prevention programs. Programs and services are designed to empower persons to overcome the challenges encountered when living with HIV/AIDS, to remain independent and productive. Our prevention team works throughout the community to stop the spread of HIV through awareness, education, counseling and support. We offer free and confidential HIV testing.
