Caring Choices is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that was created in 1993 with the mission of improving the health and welfare of residents in Northern California by providing services that are currently non-existent or limited in availability and accessibility, improving community services through volunteerism.

The agency was created in response to the HIV epidemic that was affecting residents and families living in rural Northern California. Caring Choices’ staffs works diligently to help people living with HIV/AIDS navigate the complex issues associated with the disease. With offices in Chico, Marysville and Redding Caring Choices is able to offer help and programs in eight different counties.

Since our doors opened in 1993 we have offered a wide range of services always looking to fill in the gaps. Our Current programs focus on community education, early intervention services and HIV case management work among other programs.
