Bering Omega is the little nonprofit that could. This organization has tremendous heart and passion, as an employee I see this every day. People come first here, and isn't that what you want from a health and human service organization?? I've learned so much in the year I've been here - not just about HIV/AIDS, but about the human spirit, courage, and compassion.

I work with the clients on a daily base and see new client when they come in. I always ask new clients what services that they are interested in and do my best to let them know where to go. One time a client wanted a spanish support group, however; I did not know of one yet. I found one about a month later and let the client know. To my surprise she was not interested. I asked her why, and she said "I already have one" as she pointed to all of the Day Treatment Program participants. Through our staff/volunteers/clients we are able provide a great support group for those who enter our doors. I was happily surprised by her comment, because it goes to show the supportive atmosphere we are provide for our clients.

I have had the opportunity to work with this wonderful organization for several years. My main focus is the Day Treatment program. This program began when the AIDS epidemic was hitting hard and caregivers needed to go to work; however, they needed care for their loved ones. At the time they would drop their loved ones in the emergency rooms with a sack lunch. They knew they would be taken care of there. The Care Center opened for this specific reason. As the epidemic evolved so did the program. The once then Adult Day Care is now the Day Treatment Program. Clients show positive health outcomes by attending the program. Lower viral loads, higher CD4 levels, decreased feelings of isolation and depression, and a socialization factor that is much needed. Bering Omega provides exceptional services for thier clients.
