Our mission is to advocate for and provide services to people living with HIV/AIDS, mental health and substance use disorders, their families, and loved ones and to actively promote education and prevention in the community.
We envision a world free of stigma and shame, where all people are treated with dignity and respect and their value as an individual is recognized and celebrated. We will work relentlessly and passionately to help those individuals who are disenfranchised and to create a more inclusive community.
To Be Your Friend
I like to be the kind of friend that you have been to me
I like to be the help that you’ve been always glad to be
I like to do the big things and the splendid things for you
To brush the gray from out your skies, and leave them only blue
I like to say the kindly things that I so often heard
And feel that I can rouse your soul the way that mine you served
I like to give you back the joy that you have given me
And those that are wishing you and me I hope would never be
I’d like to make you feel as rich as I who travels
Undaunted in my darkest hours with you to lean upon
And could I have on wish to share this only would it be
That I’d like to be the kind of friend that you have been to me
