Partner Partners 1 When was AIDS Project Los Angeles established and why In October 1982 the fears about Gay Related Immunodeficiency Disease GRID were so rampant the four founders of AIDS Project Los Angeles APLA decided to set up a hotline to answer questions about the disease The hotline was housed in a small closet in a community center where volunteers answered a single telephone and shared what little information was available about GRID one of the early names for AIDS unsecured loans by private limited company Realizing that funds were needed to educate the community and prevent the spread of the disease the founders held a benefit that raised more than 7 000 which became the seed money for a new organization Recognizing that AIDS was not just a gay disease the founders named the organization AIDS Project Los Angeles 2 What are some of the needs of AIDS Project Los Angeles clients and how does the organization meet these needs APLA s bilingual programs and services enhance both the health and the quality of life of our clients With nine out of ten clients living on less than 20 000 a year many depend on these programs for survival In 2011 APLA s Vance North Necessities of Life Program food pantries distributed more than 150 000 bags of free groceries and personal hygiene products to clients living with HIV AIDS People living with HIV AIDS are more susceptible to dangerous oral infections so APLA Dental Services offers a full range of dental care in two state of the art clinics and through a mobile dental van that provides care throughout underserved regions

conditions Services include formulating housing plans assisting clients in applying for housing assistance and moving into housing educating clients about tenant rights and responsibilities and acting as an ongoing liaison between clients property owners and case managers In addition APLA offers counseling services treatment education and more to help clients remain as healthy and productive as possible 3 AIDS Project Los Angeles is known for its special events what are some upcoming ways that people can get involved to support your work The biggest event that benefits APLA is AIDS Walk Los Angeles which will be taking place on Sunday October 14 2012 AIDS Walk Los Angeles is a great way to get the whole family involved in doing something to support APLA and the 11 000 clients it serves There are a number of ways to give in addition to special events We encourage supporters to volunteer their time at one of our food pantries become a member of our Leadership Circle or make a tax

street corner and his nights sleeping behind a dumpster passed away at a local hospital He was 55 years old and had been on the streets for 21 years This gentleman managed to subsist on the streets from the well intentioned yet counterproductive efforts of the local community From time to time he swept up around a business People occasionally gave him spare change or food Years passed The City s Changing Lives and Sharing Places CLASP homeless outreach team offered him options to street life and access to treatment for two years before he said It s time However by then he was so ill he went directly to the hospital where he died the following Sunday We were deeply saddened by his death but comforted to know that he died under the care of a compassionate team that treated him with dignity and respect There was comfort but no room for complacency We knew there had to be a better way When we learned about the Home for Good approach from management of homelessness to housing first to end homelessness it resonated with us at a deep level Most of the people we serve are not candidates for short term shelter but could thrive with supportive services to stabilize them Our homeless outreach is in support of a regional
