This is a wonderful organization made up of volunteers who willing support the local community with all aspects of HIV intervention. From free testing to an open pantry, they supply those is need with necessities they may otherwise not be able to afford. They also help the family members and those affected whether it be transportation support, medication or housing suppliments, or even Christmas presents. A truly "hands-on" organization that directly impacts the immediate needs of community members who might otherwise have nowhere else to turn.
