AIDS Alliance for Children, Youth & Families - $30,000
More than 8,000 HIV+ people were displaced by the hurricane in Louisiana alone. The AIDS Alliance for Children, Youth & Families and its local affiliate HIV/AIDS programs that serve women, children, youth, and families have been profoundly affected by the hurricane. More than a dozen member clinics were in the area hit hardest by Katrina, and scores more are providing support for evacuees. The funds will be used to support the emergency needs of families and young people living with HIV/AIDS and will be disbursed directly through existing local program infrastructure.
