Founded in 1987, Damien Center is Indiana’s oldest and largest AIDS service organization (ASO) and serves more than 4,000 individuals affected and infected by HIV/AIDS through a comprehensive, innovative approach to HIV care and prevention.

As the largest ASO in the state of Indiana, we provide services to more than 25% of all individuals living with HIV in the state. By making our wide variety of programs and services available in-house, we utilize a one-stop shop approach to caring for those affected by HIV and preventing its spread. We work to reduce the amount of HIV and increase the amount of healthy, immune-boosting cells in our patients’ bodies, improving the health of clients and our community.

Located in downtown Indianapolis in the Holy Cross neighborhood, Damien Center is easy to access and offers care and services for anyone infected or affected by HIV.

We will boldly, proactively, and persistently respond to the changes in the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Central Indiana. We will build on our strengths and become even more person-centered in our services and the way they are delivered by growing closer to those affected by the disease and by connecting community solutions so that no person in Central Indiana impacted by HIV/AIDS lacks the care they need to live a longer, healthier, more productive life. With the same innovative and proactive person-centered approach, we will lead the community in the effort to prevent the spread of HIV.
