About US

Founded in 2010, Toledo Mpowerment is dedicated to fulfilling the needs of the young gay/bi/transgender male community by educating, empowering, and helping them become advocates for HIV prevention in Toledo.

Toledo Mpowerment is an organization for young gay/bisexual/transgender men ages 18-29. We strive to give these men a safe place to make new friends, learn about themselves and others, get the education they need on HIV, and give them a chance to grow and become leaders in our community.

Toledo Mpowerment is committed to eliminating new HIV infections among young gay/bi/transgender men in Toledo by empowering them to make healthier choices.

Toledo Mpowerment is a directly CDC-funded program of Equitas Health (formerly AIDS Resource Center Ohio).
