BIENESTAR is a community-based social services organization serving Greater Los Angeles. Our focus is on identifying and addressing emerging health issues faced by Latinx and LGBTQ+ populations. Bienestar reaches these unique populations through innovative and compassionate peer-to-peer modeling that is 100% culturally relevant to the communities we serve.


We have a diverse staff that meets clients with understanding and acceptance, building trust and fostering a unique sense of community for those who use our services. Bienestar’s education and support programs encompass HIV/AIDS prevention, STI testing and treatment, mental health services, substance use, and harm reduction.


Bienestar operates community centers across Los Angeles County located in East Los Angeles, Hollywood, Long Beach, Pomona, San Fernando Valley, and South Los Angeles. Additionally, Bienestar can always be seen in the community, providing free HIV testing at nightclubs, giving presentations at local colleges, or sharing resources and information at health fairs and other events.
