ABOUT US


About Us, Caracole Inc.
Caracole is Greater Cincinnati’s nonprofit AIDS Service Organization that opened in 1987 as a non-medical hospice for HIV+ individuals. The name Caracole is derived from the Spanish word for shell. It is the idea of a living, growing shelter. Like a shell, Caracole provides a home that grows to meet the changing needs of the people we serve.

 
Today Caracole offers:
    • Housing and homelessness prevention programs
    • Intensive case management and pharmacy services for those living with HIV
    • HIV prevention and education services for the community

Caracole is committed to the growth and change necessary to stay relevant for those we serve and be the expanding, safe space that our name implies.

Currently, Caracole serves more than 1,500 clients living with HIV/AIDS and provides more than 1,700 free or anonymous HIV tests annually. Our service area includes Adams, Brown, Butler, Clermont, Clinton, Hamilton, Highland and Warren Counties in Southwest Ohio; Boone, Bracken, Campbell, Gallatin, Grant, Kenton, Mason and Pendleton Counties in Northern Kentucky; and Dearborn, Franklin, Ohio and Union Counties in Southwest Indiana.
