Review for PWA COALITION OF UTAH, Salt Lake City, UT, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

The only service I know that they give is free haircuts and those haircuts come from students from a school so it doesn't cost them anything. I know that I have not had any services from them other than that in years. I feel they should maybe sponsor some kind of activity each month for people living with HIV. I also hope they do the river trip. Many of us living with HIV look forward to this and there wasn't one last year.

I am not happy with the services provided by this agency at all. I haven't seen anything really come out of this place. All the services that it says it offers, have been cut completely. The very last one, the yearly river trip which many of us count on each year, was cancelled this year due to lack of funding supposedly. The thing is, that they opened a thrift store to support the agency and now there are actually LESS services. I know they are making a profit, because they also get sizable donations from the community. I believe there is a misapproptiation of funds going on. I have heard that all the agencies money is filtered through the executive directors personal business account. It just seems that when you say you are an AIDS service organization, you should provide services with the money you get. I do see that other agencies are bringing services to meet there, but none are sponsored by the agency themselves.
