Project Ohana in the Bay

A program of Asian American Recovery Services

We are a newly-funded prevention program that provides interactive health education on HIV/AIDS, viral hepatitis, and substance use/misuse to Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and other Pacific Islander young adults between the ages of 18-24 who are, or frequently in, San Francisco and Santa Clara county.

Project Ohana in the Bay is a six-week workshop series providing fun hands-on activities that reduce the impact of substance use/misuse, hepatitis, and HIV/AIDS by motivating participants to reduce high-risk behaviors. These activities also include group discussions with emphasis on how cultural and ethnic identities influence our day-to-day lives. Project Ohana in the Bay also contributes to health policy and community health care capacity through cross-training and collaboration with other providers.

Incentives available for participation, please email for more information. Best part is it’s free to participate (must be 18 or over).

Project Ohana in the Bay is funded by Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)/Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP): Capacity Building Initiative (CBI). It is a five-year grant period ending in October of 2020.
