EVAN's mission is to support and maintain the best quality of life for persons infected and affected by HIV and AIDS, and to reduce the overall incidence of HIV infection by providing education and information to the general public. This is accomplished by staff members who are well educated about HIV/AIDS and more importantly, who have a lot of compassion for people living with HIV and AIDS. EVAN's motto is "Because We Care", and I know that the staff strives to provide the best service they can to the clients, because they really do care about them.

I am so proud of the staff of EVAN for their commitment to the community. These employees really care about their clients and are concerned about the clients needs. As far as I am concerned they are the best. I am very proud to be a part of the oldest AIDS Service Organization in Hampton Roads. Please consider this agency when you want to donate your time or money.

A great group of persons whose goal is to help persons living with HIV at no cost. I have been a supporter since 1985 and feel that this agency has had a life changing impact on the Hampton Roads Community as a whole. They are constantly seeking to help those in need with regard to any reward other than being helpful and making a difference.

I have been a Board Member and Volunteer for EVAN for many years. HIV/AIDS has had a great impact on society, both as an illness and as a source of discrimination. I hope I can help through EVAN to educate people with facts. One things that scares me most is becuase through drugs there are fewer people getting full blown AIDS even though they are HIV possitive and I think people will let their guard down. So through testing, education and community outreach (which EVANS does so well) we can all make a big difference in combating this pandemic.

Evan is an agency that has Empathy to the needs of their clients they serve. The help they give to each individual client is in great numbers; which proves that the professionalism of this agency is excellent."What would these clients do without the services that EVAN provides"?

This is a wonderful organization, serving the needs of people affected by HIV & AIDS via personal medical case management, education, testing and housing in the entire eastern virginia area. I have volunteered for EVAN (fka TACT) for over five years and their impact on the heterosexual and homosexual communities continues to be positive and profound!
