Free Condoms, Lubricant and Life-Saving Information 24/7
New HIV cases in Washington DC are 12 times the national average.

In DC, HIV is transmitted 5 times each day.


LIFE GUARD is a non-traditional and comprehensive condom distribution program that is driven by the involvement of peer-to-peer social networks, local businesses, and community-based organization outreach services. The program distributes free condoms at local establishments in historically overlooked communities, 24 hours a day.

Life-saving information is included with each condom pack, including how to use a condom and contact information for local community services related to the social issues that contribute to HIV infection. Services listed include: youth empowerment, HIV prevention, addiction treatment, harm reduction (including needle exchange, domestic violence protection and support) mental health and STI treatment.
