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.
