I have been HIV Positive for almost 23 years. I come and volunteer there at the center ever year. I enjoy working with the staff and the clients. I met Jeff on a conference and he invited me down there to see how there program works. I was employed with Prevention Works Needle Exchange Program for 12 years until we closed in Feb, 2011. They have a really good program down there in ATL.

This organization truly helps those who need it the most. Jeff, Mona and the entire staff of AHRC are caring, compassionate individuals who care for this population and the services they provide. This agency helps so many people in so many different ways and in this day and age its good to see money going directly to the people who need it and people working passionately to help others.

I have had the distinct pleasure of volunteering with AHRC as a graduate student researching addiction. This organization provides critical services to the Atlanta community. AHRC is uniquely capable in its mission to service consumers who require a higher level of care and follow through with linkage to inpatient or outpatient medical, substance abuse treatment or transitional facilities. AHRC has the experience and expertise through strategic partnerships and should be seen as the model for harm reduction work in the region.

By working at an AIDS service organization in Atlanta, I have had the pleasure of working with AHRC on several collaborations. I first began working with the AHRC when they became a member of my capacity building project designed for local community based organizations to enhance their overall infrastructure, so that we all can be “stronger together”. They were very supportive and attended the majority of our events such as our Case Management training. Also, I had the opportunity to assist with HIV testing and counseling at the AHRC with one of their major community events. During the testing and counseling process, they were very supportive and provided assistance when needed. In addition, at one of our staff trainings, staff members from the AHRC presented a Harm Reduction training to the entire staff. The training was very informative and gave me a better sense of the benefits and impacts of harm reduction. I have enjoyed thoroughly working with the AHRC! I look forward to continuing to work with AHRC in the near future.

I became acquainted with AHRC when they served the English Avenue area known as the Bluff but were temporarily housed in a Candler Park church. I was a sociology graduate student working on my dissertation on heroin users. About than ten years later, as a professor with a research grant, I contacted AHRC in their new home and we collaborated in research goals to better understand the lives of older drug users and the barriers to health care and social services faced by their clients. I was pleased to see the expansion of their work. While AHRC started with an SEP focus, currently they offer a tiered program that goes well beyond syringe exchanges. Activities include sponsoring women’s groups, men’s groups, testing and counseling for HIV, TB and syphilis. The staff provides food, showers and clean clothing at the building, and delivers food as outreach to home-bound neighbors. On request, AHRC staff provides referrals to substance abuse treatment, medical services and methadone providers. In an effort to fulfill their mission statement to improve the wellbeing of marginalized individuals, AHRC staff is working hard to provide linkage to employment and housing. The unique approach of the AHRC staff in assuring the inclusion, participation, and rights of the most marginalized of citizens—destitute and homeless drug users—is worth our attention and support. Their community-based prevention and wellness intervention contributes to our united goal of meaningfully addressing contemporary social problems.

The Great!

I have a better understanding of the community and population I study thanks to AHRC, and hopefully I will translate this knowledge into policy change to help this population.
