Founded in 1985, the mission of Boulder County AIDS Project (BCAP) is to provide support, advocacy, and education to those in our community who are living with or affected by HIV, and to serve as an outreach and information center to prevent the further transmission of HIV. With offices in Boulder and Longmont, BCAP serves Boulder, Broomfield, Gilpin, and Clear Creek counties with a staff of 14 full-time employees stewarding an annual budget of $1.4 million to implement HIV Care Services for people living with HIV and Prevention Services for people at-risk of acquiring HIV and hepatitis C (HCV).
