Agency Overview (Bureau)

Founded by Ashley Rozier, II, Cape Fear Regional Bureau for Community Action, Inc. is the oldest grassroots minority owned street outreach 501 c 3 non-_profit community-based organization in North Carolina. Since 1989, it has implemented prevention services in the Cape Fear Region and health education/risk-reduction services and testing and referral during nontraditional hours. Under the direction of its Board of Directors the Bureau's mission is to mobilize and empower persons of African Descent by educating them about health care, access and prevention. For over twenty seven years, the Bureau has conducted aggressive outreach for HIV disease, Diabetes, Alcohol/substance abuse, and many other chronic needs of Persons of African Descent in Cumberland and surrounding counties. Much of the outreach has been conducted during non-traditional hours such as evenings, late nights and weekends in non-traditional venues such as crack houses, street corners, back alleys and public housing. In order to build capacity to address health disparities and related prevention needs within the area, the Bureau has mobilized and galvanized a community partnership in true collaboration and cooperation for its success. 

The Bureau has consistently been at the forefront of all issues facing disparities among minority populations by maintaining aggressive advocacy before elected and appointed officials both on the local as well as on the state level. The Bureau has been able to spearhead this recognition into concrete efforts to provide counseling, testing and referral and education and risk reduction activities to over 100,000 at risk individuals. The successes of the Bureau's prevention efforts are attributed to a number of factors: a development of trust of street outreach efforts in targeted high-risk neighborhoods that has allowed the Bureau to refer high-risk individuals for screening for other STDs who would not have gone to a traditional health service agency; a progressive linkage with local faith institutions allowing the Bureau and the community to have annual AIDS statewide testing events; and a positive relationship with local media (including television and radio) that lends favorable coverage to outreach efforts. The coverage has increased credibility and respect with faith institutions, businesses, public and private sectors. It has also enhanced the Bureau's service delivery.

The Bureau's past efforts have heavily targeted Men having Sex with Men (MSM)-Self identifying and Nondisclosure, Gay Men, “Dow Low” Men, Persons Living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA), and their partners of minority descent with a strong emphasis on injectable drug users. This continuous focus on intervention will result in a reduction of risky activities among those who are highest risk for HIV/AIDS./STD and syphilis in the Cape Fear Region.

The Bureau's mission is to mobilize and empower persons of African Descent (African- Americans) by educating them about HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases to reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS. Our mission is accomplished through aggressive street outreach/prevention case management during non-traditional hours to women of childbearing age and their partners, adolescent females and their partners with strong emphasis on injectable drug users, crack cocaine users, and "down-low" men who are heterosexual identified and of African Descent. Among the targeted communities are low-income and drug infested neighborhoods, high crime neighborhoods and public housing. These sub-cultures and the Bureau's target populations are among the most difficult to reach and the most disproportionately affected and infected with the disease.
