About Alliance of AIDS Services:
Their mission is to serve people living with HIV/AIDS, their loved ones, caregivers and communities at large, through compassionate and non-judgmental care, prevention, education and advocacy.

The Alliance dates back to 1989, when the AIDS Service Agency of Orange County, Triangle AIDS Interfaith Network (TRAIN) and AIDS Service Agency of North Carolina consolidated efforts in servicing and supporting people living with HIV/AIDS.

The Alliance is the only agency in North Carolina that provides a full continuum of care to individuals living with HIV/AIDS: primary care; pastoral care and counseling; substance abuse treatment; mental health counselors; nutritional counseling with a registered dietition; medical and non-medical case management; shared-living (Hustead House) and a family care home (Orange House).

They remember those lost, those living and those we must protect.
