The Women's Collective

Washington, District of Columbia

About this nonprofit organization
The mission of The Women's Collective (TWC) is to meet the self-defined needs of women and their families living with and at risk for HIV/AIDS, reducing barriers to care and strengthening their network of support and services. As a Washington DC-based nonprofit organization led by women with HIV and their allies/advocates, we work to fulfill our mission by:

Providing services that are peer-based, woman-focused, family-centered and culturally appropriate.

Providing a safe, non-judgmental environment for all women.

Providing a voice for women who are at risk for or living with HIV and their families through advocacy at the local, national and international levels.

Creating partnerships among service providers, governmental, non-governmental and private entities.

The Women's Collective grows out of the life experience of our Founder/Executive Director, Patricia Nalls, a woman living with HIV/AIDS, who used her personal lessons learned to create this unique organization.
