Nonprofit Overview

Causes: AIDS, Community Health Systems, Counseling, Health, Mental Health, Substance Abuse Treatment

Mission: Thrive Alabama empowers our patients to create a healthy community by providing compassionate, accessible, affordable, comprehensive care.

Results: Thrive Alabama has provided healthcare and support services since 1988 to people living with HIV and AIDS in North Alabama. Over the years, we have added behavioral health, substance abuse treatment, and sexually transmitted infection (STI) care to our wide range of services. More than 3,500 people in North Alabama benefit from our medical, behavioral health, substance abuse, housing, and case management services. The majority of these services are available to the public, regardless of their HIV status. Our staff encourages clients to be proactive in their care. With proper care, people living with HIV today can live long, healthy lives. When the AIDS Action Coalition first began offering support to people living with HIV in 1988, services were provided by volunteers and included simple acts like providing dinner or assisting with rent payments. Money for this support came from donations given by people in the community with a desire and willingness to help. In 1992 the AIDS Action Coalition opened the Davis Clinic in Huntsville to provide medical services to those living with HIV and AIDS. In 2015, the AIDS Action Coalition became Thrive Alabama to better represent its expanded services and healthier client base. In the recent years, our services have grown beyond HIV healthcare, and medical providers at Thrive Alabama treat all the healthcare needs of our clients from a sick visit to chronic conditions such as diabetes or hypertension. Social workers, a registered dietitian, psychiatrist, and a mental health counselor round out our comprehensive team. Thrive Alabama’s expanded services reach thousands each year in 12 counties across North Alabama. Thrive Alabama currently serves 1,450 medical clients for whom all medical services are provided on a sliding fee scale. Thrive Alabama’s services will continue to expand as our clients live healthier lives.

The healthcare and support services received at Thrive Alabama have been out of this world. The providers took the necessary time to evaluate my physical, mental and social well-being with thoughtfulness and care. I owe my health and well-being to the staff of Thrive Alabama. I would not have been HIV positive undetectable for 5 years without them.
