AIDS Response Effort, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization that provides innovative approaches to improve health disparities in our community. We offer a variety of medical and support services clients living with HIV, which includes: physician visits, lab work, dental care, mental health, substance use services, wellness, support group, transportation, nutrition services, education, financial counseling, and housing assistance.
ARE's Education & Prevention services offers access to condoms and PrEP for HIV prevention. Staff can assist clients in insurance enrollment and access to preventive medication (PrEP) at no cost to the client.
Our HIV testing has expanded across the community and we now combine HIV testing with Hepatitis C testing. The Baby Boomer generation, as well as those who have injected drugs, are at high risk for Hepatitis C. We provide free, confidential testing and access to Hepatitis C treatment at no cost to the client.
The ARE Education Team also seeks to end the stigma around HIV, LGBTQ identity, and sexual health. We offer Safe Zone and Gender Identity trainings to the community and can adjust the training based around the intended audience.
ARE has a comprehensive housing program that includes case management, rental, utility, and mortgage assistance, as well as financial counseling and budget management. Homelessness and lack of affordable housing is a reality nationwide, and our community is no exception. ARE is committed to addressing and ending homelessness in the Lord Fairfax Health District (the counties of Frederick, Warren, Clarke, Page, Shenandoah, and Winchester City).
