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.
This orginization is well know thru out the Salt Lake City area as being a non responsive part of the HIV/AIDS community. Hundreds of complainst have been made to the orginizations board about the executive director and yet nothing has been done about her. This orginization is only here to support the salarys of the employees and has cuts services to the HIV/AIDS persons it is ment to serve. All programs that are listed on this orginizations web page are not happening and are not being offered. There is no recreation program that is offered and the health and eduicational programs are non existent. The Director works from home and takes product that is donated to them home on a regular basis. It is my oppinion that the director should be accountable for a 40 hour work week as she is paid to be there. The phones are not answered and phone calls are not returned. This is the absolutly worse HIV/Aids org in utah. I would like to see a change in theboard of directors as they have had the same governing body for years. Over all i rate the orginization as a F-. I will not support this group as.
