AIDS Interfaith Network (AIN) works to prevent the spread of HIV, to eliminate the stigma of HIV, and serves persons living with HIV/AIDS and other vulnerable populations. AIN is a multi-cultural non-profit organization. We promote testing, treatment, and prevention through our programs in order to meet the practical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the individuals, groups, and communities served. We directly serve more than 2,000 men, women, and children who have HIV/AIDS, and make over 5,000 contacts through our prevention and education programs. Our purpose is to serve with compassion those who have HIV/AIDS and to work to prevent the further spread of HIV. Our core values are service, respect, inclusion, collaboration, and compassion. Our vision is to offer hope, and help create a world without HIV/AIDS.

The AIDS Care Team has offered compassionate care through companionship for over 10 years. Volunteers assist persons living with HIV/AIDS with meal preparation, light housekeeping, shopping and errands. Six hours of required training provided by AIDS Interfaith Network. Volunteers commit to a minimum of 8 hours of service per month and attendance to bimonthly meetings.
