We’ve Always Focused on Change
In 1990, we opened our doors as a group of dedicated volunteers staring down the AIDS crisis. Twenty-five years later, we’re also helping those affected by chronic hepatitis, diabetes, addiction, and mental health issues create a positive change.
... and Peer Support
Specially trained Alliance team members—many who’ve experienced the same challenges as our program members, provide guidance on recovery services, medical and mental health care, and housing issues. Here’s how.
