URGENT NEWS!

We are pleased to announce that, thanks to the outpouring of support, the decision to move HIV/AIDS services to Clarion University has been rescinded and services will continue to be provided by AIDS Resource and Caring Communities for AIDS; clients will see no interruption to their services.

 

There are many people we need to thank for their help. We received tremendous support from Representative Matt Baker, U.S. Congressman Lou Barletta, Representative Mike Hanna, Commissioner Donna Iannone, Commissioner Rick Mirabito, Representative Jeff Wheeland, Senator Gene Yaw. We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to ACT UP Philadelphia, ACT UP Williamsport. We are thankful to the clients who stared down stigma to publicly voice their concerns. We are grateful to all those who signed our petition, on-line and on paper and to all those who donated to make our Harrisburg protest possible; thanks to your support we were able to deliver over 1,000 petitions to the Governor’s Office.

 

We are so pleased that our voices were heard, that the decision was reversed and that life-saving services can continue in our communities, provided by the agencies our clients know and trust.

SPECIAL NOTE:

AIDS Resource is partnering with an eye doctor for FREE eye health & vision exams.  Interested clients should contact their case manager for more information.
