In 2019, POZ Impact was established as the inaugural radio program in Houston, devoted to supporting PLHIV, their loved ones, and allies. Two years later, in 2021, POZ Impact Mobile Mechanic was introduced to the public as a low-cost-effective automotive repair service, successfully aiding over 600 Houston residents with their vehicle repairs.
Our next goal is to establish a brick-and-mortar location. This location will house a mechanic shop for repairs and an office space for our operations. We also plan to offer office space for the community, as well as provide a space for HIV testing and awareness initiatives.
