SJAA does incredible work in the South Jersey community, serving some of those most in need in the absence of any significant government or large agency commitments. They make a little bit go a long ways and are truly focused on client outcomes and quality of life, offering some services that are not readily available elsewhere. From their Oasis drop in center in Atlantic city to prison counseling & services, nutritional and medication support and preventive services, this organization has proven a safe harbor to many in need, especially those afflicted with or at risk of infection with HIV. As a volunteer board member, I am very selective of those organizations to which I can spread my limited availability. Based on the quality of this agency's work, the dedication and professionalism of its staff, and the dependence of the community they serve, I can say that this is the most effective agency with whom I have served.
This organization is dedicated to preventing the spread of AIDS thru education. It also helps those and the family members who have been afflicted with this dreaded disease. I Alliance is an exception in that just about every dollar raised is put back into the community, with very little going to administrative costs.
