Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Emergency Assistance, Human Services

Mission: Provide emotional support, crisis service programs and support for females living with the HIV/AIDS virus - including their children and family members. Offering community education and prevention projects.

Results: 14 Year old agency has chosen to "trail blaze" our efforts in designing "gender driven projects" to address the "specific" needs of women living with the AIDS virus. Our clients do not feel they fit into the LGBT category. With our decision to serve this demographic, comes the consequence of limited funding. Because of dedicated private donors and private foundations who believe in our mission we have maintained our Intake Office and telephone support network with success. Each year we serve over 200 women annually with no full-time paid staff.

Target demographics: Offer support to disenfranchised females of color living with HIV/AIDS who need assistance with community navigation, crisis counseling, food/transportation assistance and dependent/household support.

Direct beneficiaries per year: 205 impacted women

Geographic areas served: TX and U.S.

Programs: 30 day wellness telephone check-in by Care Team. Group support sessions with a meal and empowerment tools taught, Intake session with crisis, navigational and referral counseling Peer - led telephone support network

I have been connected with ASG since coming to Dallas 7 years and have enjoyed connecting with other women and the professionalism of the staff. All agencies don't feel safe but at ASG I feel I can talk freely and be respected.

I was in a dark place in my life when I was referred to ASG. Upon the first visit I was welcomed with a loving hug. As I sat and told my story Mrs E listened with care. Mrs. E took out the time to call resources and go over a packet that had many more resources. As I cry she listened with caring ears and a open heart. At the end of the visit I was giving a care package and a loving hug. Leaving ASG I felt hope that I had not felt in along time. We continued to call and text until the weight was lifted off my heart. I now consider ASG a family . Thanks Mrs. E for saving me from the darkness.

Hello my name is Mrs Dyson and I am a client at A Sister's Gift. And I would just like to say a special thank you to this organization because they were very supportive to me when i was diagnosed with HIV in 2008. I have never met such an empowering organization that truly cares about helping women such as myself. I am exceptionally grateful for the woman that I am today because of A Sister's Gift. Thank you to Mrs. Edwards and her wonderful staff.

ASG has given me a voice to reach other women living with HIV. I am able to use my gift as a retired Social Worker to give emotional support and receive emotional support in return. Regardless of your educational background you are not immune to this disease and are able to receive the much needed support by connecting with ASG.
