About

BABES Network-YWCA is a peer education and support program for women living with HIV; a sisterhood of women facing HIV together. BABES was started by a group of HIV positive women in Seattle, Washington who came together to share information, experiences and support.

  • Support Groups
  • Leadership Retreats
  • Outreach & Prevention Education

Our HIV/AIDS Outreach and Prevention Education (HOPE) Project trained and coordinated people living with HIV to share their stories through media campaigns, speaking engagements and community forums in order to educate the public, combat stigma and stop the spread of HIV.
