ACCESS AIDS Care Mission Our mission is to promote the dignity and wellness of adults, families, youth and children impacted by HIV/AIDS through quality support and prevention services so they may live healthy lives. At ACCESS AIDS Care we have worked to adapt our services to the advances that have been made to fight HIV and AIDS. Individuals are now living longer with the disease, but their need for services from ACCESS AIDS Care has not diminished. In addition, the face of HIV/AIDS is constantly changing and it is our commitment to our community to serve those children, women and men who are affected by HIV/AIDS.
It all began in 1989. CANDII (Children's AIDS Network) and Full Circle AIDS Hospice Support were two individual agencies who were working in Hampton Roads to better the community and those who were affected and infected with HIV/AIDS. They each did their part to serve their respective clients and educate the community on the overwhelming effect of HIV/AIDS in Hampton Roads.
ACCESS: AIDS Care Center for Education and Supportive Services was formed in 2006 in a merger between Full Circle AIDS Hospice Support and CANDII. Full Circle AIDS Hospice Support had an excellent reputation of serving individuals who were in the end stages of their disease and needed hospice support services. Full Circle provided case management and meals for over 150 people annually. CANDII focused its efforts on women and children impacted by the disease and provided family-centered services throughout all stages of HIV. CANDII provided case management, daycare, and support groups for over 300 people affected by HIV/AIDS each year.Together, the two agencies came together with a common mission to serve more individuals and families in Hampton Roads that are impacted by HIV/AIDS. Under our new name, ACCESS AIDS Care, we have united those two causes and brought together two solid reputations so we may better serve our community. For 20 years, we have been bringing HIV/AIDS awareness and support services to the Hampton Roads community.
