Wellness Services- STEP
Wellness Services is located in Downtown Flint. It’s a safe space where individuals and couples can get tested for HIV and STIs and get free condoms and lube. Members of the LGBT community can drop-in and hang out, attend educational workshops, help plan and attend events, use a computer or watch some television. We are here to be a space that you can be yourself without concerns.
We have expanded past our original mission and have moved to a vision of how we see our community. We employ a harm reduction model to our everyday practices and believe in advocating for marginalized populations across a myriad of social justice issues. We treat everyone with dignity and respect. This is a Safe Space.
