Organization Description:

The AIDS Project of Southern Vermont is a regional AIDS service organization that provides direct services to people living with HIV/AIDS, and HIV prevention services to those at most risk in Southern Vermont including gay and bisexual men and women at heterosexual risk. Founded by volunteers in 1988 as a grassroots, community-based group, the AIDS Project now fills an important statewide role in making sure that Vermont's fight against the AIDS epidemic is strong and effective. Our mission is to provide direct services to those whose lives are affected by HIV/AIDS, to offer education about HIV/AIDS to help prevent its spread, and to promote understanding within the communities served.
