Access for Community & Cultural Education
Programs & Training (ACCEPT)
ACCEPT is the only community-based (501c3) organization providing HIV/AIDS prevention education, intervention, and support services targeting African Americans in Washoe County. ACCEPT was founded in 1995 by Pastor Glenn E. Taylor Sr., as an outreach ministry of the Greater Light Church. At that time no one in the State of Nevada was targeting African Americans, who have been disproportionately affected and infected since the epidemic’s beginning.
Our Mission is to empower under-served individuals and families by providing public health services and resources through community partnership serving a multicultural population with emphasis on at-risk communities. Find out what drives us to do what we do.
