History

FRIENDS Alliance is a human service agency organized and managed by people infected and affected by HIV/AIDS. The organization was formed in 1987 when a group of HIV positive individuals, dissatisfied with existing programs offered in the community, united to provide needed support services for themselves and others that were impacted by the spectrum of HIV. Since then the organization has grown into a well-rounded human service agency, with a membership that is approaching 300 members. The agency now provides advocacy, information, and referral services. Services provided are funded through Steppin’ Out, and through donations, fundraising, and memorials.
