Mission Statement

o provide support, assistance, and education to people affected by Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) and to provide HIV prevention education to the communities of Southwest Alabama in an effort to reduce the rate of new HIV infections.

Description

Community AIDS Resources, Education & Support (AIDS Alabama South) is the only agency in Mobile, Baldwin, Clarke, Conecuh, Escambia, Monroe, and Washington counties solely dedicated to providing medical and social service support, as well as educational services, for those affected by HIV/AIDS. AIDS Alabama South coordinates a variety of resources to assist everyone affected by this epidemic. Our agency also work aggressively to provide prevention education to the entire area in our efforts to stop the spread of this virus. AIDS Alabama South was founded in 1987 by a small group of Mobilians who recognized the need for resources for people living with AIDS. In 1989 a three year start-up grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation provided for the hiring of professional staff and paid operating expenses. In each of the next eight years, additional funding programs and services were developed to better serve the community. AIDS Alabama South is the lead AIDS Service Organization in Southwest Alabama. AIDS Alabama South is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and is recognized as a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit organization. In April of 1995 AIDS Alabama South expanded its service area to include the seven southwest counties of Mobile, Baldwin, Escambia, Clark, Conecuh, Monroe and Washington. As the AIDS epidemic expands, the demand for additional services grows. Functioning as a regional access point for support services and information, AIDS Alabama South is recognized as a vital community resource to meet this demand. With your support, AIDS Alabama South will continue to fill this role . . . until AIDS is no more!
