    A songwriter once wrote, “If I can help somebody as I pass along the way, then my living shall not be in vain.” Why do we do what we do? We do it for that mother who lost her only son to this pandemic; we do it for those two girls who must grow up without a mother because she too was lost to this epidemic, we do it for that young man beginning college so that he may live to see the fruits of his labor. We are here to make a difference. Join us as we work to reduce the spread of HIV among African Americans.

    Established in 1995, Brotherhood, Incorporated is a minority non-profit community based organization created to join the fight against the spread of HIV and alleviate the struggles of African Americans living with HIV and AIDS. This agency, governed by a board of directors, has a racial/ethnic composition that is reflective of the diverse populations served. The mission of Brotherhood, Incorporated is to develop and implement programs and services that impact the economic, social, and health disparities that exist within underserved and at-risk communities through education, enlightenment, and empowerment.

    Brotherhood, Incorporated has a long-standing history of providing services in the African American community. Since its inception, we have provided street and venue based outreach to African American men who have sex with men, housing services to persons living with HIV/AIDS, and low income housing to persons in need.

    Brotherhood, Incorporated provides transitional and permanent housing to low income individuals living with HIV/AIDS in a group home setting called Trinity House. Phase II Housing is an independent housing program for persons living with HIV/AIDS and individuals with an income at or below the median poverty guidelines. Additionally, the agency offers HIV/AIDS educational programs, provides HIV counseling and testing, and has a system of referrals for individuals seeking additional services within the Greater New Orleans area. Brotherhood, incorporated also provides capacity building assistance to other community based organizations across the state of Louisiana.
