$5,000 will buy one exam table to increase our resources for the more than 2,000 clients who come to us for testing and treatment.
With the fallout from COVID, we have also increased the dollars for housing and financial assistance by over 1,700% serving 350% more clients.
$2,500 will help 2 more families with up to 12 months of housing assistance. This support prevents these two families from becoming homeless
$1,000 has a tremendous impact on the delivery of food to those coming to us for help. A $1,000 donation buys groceries for 10 families for one month. As we know, proper nutrition is vital to maintaining the health for our clients who have compromised immune systems. We not only provide nutritious meals and supplements, we also offer counseling from a licensed nutritionist to customize food delivery for specific healthcare needs.
$500 allows us to test 20 individuals for HIV, STD and HepC. This is the first step to ending the HIV epidemic. Without testing and proper treatment health will decline and the possibility of more transmissions will increase.
$250 is the cost of a fine meal. Most of us aren't going out to eat these days and I'm sure we save more than this each month from staying at home. Let's put those dollars to work and by providing medication for the uninsured clients coming to us for help.
