  • Mission:
  • The mission of the AIDS Task Force is to help improve the quality of life for men, women, and children living with HIV and AIDS, to educate the community in order to decrease the incidence of HIV and STD infection, and to increase the public's understanding and compassionate response to HIV and AIDS.

  • History:
  • Since 1985, the task force has worked to improve the health and well being of men, women, and children living with HIV and AIDS by providing them with care, support, advocacy, and assistance as they struggle to learn to live with a disease that gradually drains them physically, emotionally and financially. The task force seeks to empower persons living with HIV so that they can continue contributing to their community to the greatest extent possible without the fear of stigma or discrimination. At the same time, the task force has worked to educate persons about HIV so they are equipped with the skills and knowledge necessary to reduce their risks for HIV in the future. The task force also seeks to put an end to the stigma and discrimination that surround HIV and AIDS by channeling the community‚Äôs compassion to those infected and affected by this disease. Mandated by the Indiana State Department of Health, the task force serves eleven counties in northeast Indiana and is the oldest and geographically the largest AIDS Service Organization in the state. All services of the task force are free.
