We are CAL-PEP
Cal-Pep has been the Bay Area's primary health outreach program reaching the hard to serve since 1984.
"Building Stronger Communities"
Our Mission: To provide tailored health education, disease prevention, risk reduction and support services to people at highest risk for HIV/AIDS in a language that they understand.
Founded in 1984, The California Prostitutes Education Project is one of the first HIV education, prevention and street outreach organizations in the country.Learn more...
How Can You Help?
Your support will allow us to provide tailored health education and disease prevention services to people at risk for HIV and AIDS.
A reduction in federal funding and grants prohibits CAL-PEP from providing much needed services in the community. Your donations will allow us to continue the work we've done in the community for the past 30 years!Read more

Our Impact .
One of the greatest misconceptions of CAL-PEP is that we are only an out-reach service or that we only support sex-workers. The truth is CAL-PEP has served the community for over 30 years and has grown with the needs of the surrounding community. Areas of impact, youth services, MSM services, testing and education for HIV, substance abuse prevention and case management. CAL-PEP is not just a community based organization, CAL-PEP is your community partner working for a healthier Oakland.
