Arts & Community
The Center Board of Directors, Young Leaders Council (YLC), staff, friends and family invite you to walk with us for AIDS Walk New York 2011. Bring your friends, family and pets to raise awareness and funds for the Center's HIV/AIDS services!
For 25 years the Center has been in the fight. Because AIDS is not going away. AIDS still kills. Every day, people are still becoming infected with HIV. Every day our community turns to the Center for support. To learn more about some of the Center’s HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention programs and services, please visit our HIV/AIDS information
