WCAC was founded in 1992 by a group of devoted community women (five of which were HIV positive) to address the problems and failures of HIV/AIDS prevention and education programs, as well as the inability of health care and social services to provide an appropriate level of care to HIV+ women of color.  WCAC became a program of the MAC in 2010 providing drop-in services to African American and Latina women; however, we embrace all women, including but not limited to: 1) commercial sex workers; 2) incarcerated women; 3) HIV-positive women and those at high risk for HIV infection; and 4) substance abusing women. Central to all of WCAC's services are strategies, which endeavor to halt the dual epidemics of substance abuse and HIV/AIDS, and successfully provide women of color with skills, information and support they need to take the steps necessary to attain self-sufficiency. The women's drop-in center is a safe place for women to begin to address the issues that obstruct her ability to grow physically, emotionally, and spiritually. It is located on 409 Blue Hill Avenue, Dorchester, MA.
