    What is Know Your Status Dallas?

    Know Your Status Dallas is a free event chain open to the public where we take HIV/AIDS awareness and education to at-risk communities in Dallas County with free HIV testing available to anyone ready to take a stand and know their status. We host a signature event each year on or around February 7th in observance of National Black HIV/AIDS  Awareness Day, recognizing the devastating fact that Black Americans have the highest rate of new HIV diagnoses. It is our goal to decrease new HIV infection rates by educating attendees through community outreach forums, on-site testing, counseling, and other HIV/AIDS informative materials.

    What is Chris Howell Foundation?

    The Chris Howell Foundation provides programs and services to vulnerable communities that address disparities in health, wellness, and financial literacy. CHF’s programs and services empower individuals and families to achieve self-sufficiency through skills development, increased knowledge, and access to necessary resources.

    Why should you sponsor?

    Know Your Status Dallas has become a staple event in our community to celebrate the importance of personal health while bringing attention to an epidemic that continues to adversely impact our community.

    In 2016, after conducting an interview with a woman living with HIV, a desire was triggered in Howell to do something regarding the growing HIV/AIDS epidemic in Dallas County. Howell lost his 33-year-old brother due to complications from AIDS in 2006 and today, Chris and his wife, Dominique, are raising awareness to thousands of individuals in the Dallas-Fort Worth area through the Chris Howell Foundation by providing HIV/AIDS education and prevention programs. This event series is our biggest effort and most successful effort to combat this disease in our community, and with your help, we can make an even bigger impact.
