Missoula AIDS Council is a non-profit organization that seeks to end the transmission of HIV/AIDS, advocates for those living with HIV/AIDS, and provides culturally competent services and care for those with HIV/AIDS. Missoula AIDS Council administers Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA) in 17 counties in Western Montana, assists those who are homeless or at risk for becoming homeless, provides outreach, services, and referrals for those living with HIV/AIDS, provides free and anonymous HIV tests, and offers HIV/AIDS educational workshops for businesses and organizations. The Council also provides a pantry of non-food items that are not covered by food stamps (soap, toothpaste, shampoo, pet food, laundry detergent, toliet paper, etc.) for those living with HIV/AIDS, and sponsors the "Buddy Program," which pairs a community volunteer with a person with HIV/AIDS that is in need of companionship or general support.
