Baton Rouge AIDS Society (BRASS) was
founded on October 5, 1998. Like many agencies of its inception, its grass roots began inside one of the bedrooms of a two
bedroom apartment. Since then, BRASS has continued to grow and serve the Baton Rouge and surrounding areas. Through the years,
we have been able to reach thousands of individuals through our outreach efforts and educational sessions. In 1999 we received
approval of an IRS recognized 501(c)3 nonprofit status. In addition, on June 9, 1999, we formally established a Board of Directors.
Our adopted slogan is “Together We Can Make A Difference!”

What Are AIDS Service
All around the world, community-based AIDS Service Organizations (ASOs) serve as
a primary source of help to people who are infected and affected by this deadly virus. Baton Rouge AIDS Society is one of
the many organizations providing thousands of hours of care and prevention to the community.
An ASO may be the
place that a person is first diagnosed with HIV. It can also serve as the link or source to provide every type of service
a person with HIV may need for the rest of his/her life. From the small three-person agencies to the larger multi-million
dollar budgeted agencies, ASOs have been helping persons living with HIV maintain a sense of dignity in their lives by providing
assistance in dealing with the HIV/AIDS pandemic on a personal and daily level.
Baton Rouge AIDS Society provides
a blend of HIV/AIDS education, referrals, counseling services, technical assistance, community education and volunteer training.
