HALO was launched in 2010 to address gaps in funding for serving Nevada County residents who are living with HIV/AIDS. HALO is a collaboration between HIV Care Services and Unity in the Gold Country Spiritual Center.

Unity is a spiritual community with open doors, minds, and hearts celebrating the divinity and love within everyone. Unity’s mission is to provide a welcoming home within our community for the spiritual growth and transformation of daily lives.

Unity is a positive, practical, progressive approach to Christianity based on the teachings of Jesus and the power of prayer. Unity honors the universal truths in all religions and respects each individual’s right to choose a spiritual path.

Gentleness, self-sacrifice and generosity are the exclusive possession of no one race or religion. ~Mohandas Gandhi

HIV Care Services is a local county program that provides ongoing HIV/AIDS case management for individuals and families who are affected by the disease. HIV Care Services does not receive any HALO money and is supported entirely by Federal and State Office of AIDS funding.
