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.

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.

This organization is unique in that its history paralleled that of HIV/AIDS. Founded in the early 80's as a group of friends helping friends that were dyeing from a relatively unknown disease it soon developed into a community based non profit to meet the growing need of those that were living and dying if HIV/AIDS. Having started as a same group servicing a small population of less than 20 it soon grew to a staff of over 100 staff and volunteers. A unique position of EVAN is that it has grown and adjusted it self to the changing times from it original name of Tidewater AIDS Crisis Task force to that of the Eastern Virginia AIDS Notwork. Always there for those that it seeks to help it motto has always been "Clients First " Because We Care" Now serving a total registered clientele of over 1,000 persons, it continue top provide support from food , clothing, housing , assistance with utilities and medications, and much more all at NO COST to those living with HIV/AIDS . EVAN is truly and inspiration to all.
