DAP Health, an advocacy-based health center founded in 1984, is Coachella Valley’s primary not-for-profit resource for those living with, affected by, or at risk for HIV or AIDS. Free services at the new Indio clinic will include testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections, medication for HIV prevention, and testing for HIV and hepatitis C testing.

With four locations across the Coachella Valley, Revivals donates more than $1 million a year to DAP Health, funding hope and health for those receiving care from the organization’s clinics. Community members can donate gently used goods, consign designer items, or shop new and used furniture, clothing and more in support of DAP, according to a news release.

“DAP Health’s new clinic allows us to better reach people in need of care across the Valley. Access to services is key to delivering care and we appreciate the support of the City of Indio in opening this location,” David Brinkman, DAP Health CEO said in a prepared statement. “We are also thankful for the community’s support of the Indio Revivals store, which raises funds that allow us to offer these services free of charge.”

Indio, the largest city in the Coachella Valley, is committed to attracting, retaining and expanding businesses to maintain a healthy economy and provide for community wellness. For more information, click here.
