HIV Testing & STI Prevention

The Montrose Center conducts street and community-level outreach targeting persons who are identified as being at risk for HIV infection and are uncertain of their HIV status, with HIV and TB screening. Participants are assessed for risk behaviors, provided with culturally relevant information about reducing risk. Referrals to case management, health services, alcohol and drug treatment and education about the link between substance use and HIV/STI risk are also provided.

Please note that while we cannot test for a full STI panel, we can make referrals.

Free HIV Walk-In Testing


The Montrose Center does provide walk-in HIV testing on Wednesdays and Fridays from 11 a.m. – 3 pm. While supplies last, we also provide walk-in Hep C testing. If these times are not convenient, please call 713.529.0037 x0 to make an appointment.
