I find that Frannie Peabody has been a very helpful progam, almost two years ago they help me start a Gay Men's Support group, for Gay men in the Saco/Biddeford area.
When ever I need help with supplies such as pamphlets or condom supplies they have alway been there for me, inoder for me to have them available for the men in the group. They come and do HIV testing for those men that can't get to a testing facility.
Over all they have been there whenever anything has come up and we need help.
