Home • Mission & Overview

Our mission is to eliminate the spread and stigma of HIV/AIDS, improve the lives of those living with HIV/AIDS, and promote community health through comprehensive and culturally-sensitive services, education programs, and advocacy.

AIDS Delaware is the state’s first and largest HIV Service Organization (HSO), founded in 1984 by a group of concerned volunteer activists addressing the needs of the state’s emerging AIDS community. For nearly 40 years, AIDS Delaware has been known as Delaware’s premier HSO working for the health of the human family.

We are the first nonprofit HSO in Delaware to initiate and practice Trauma-Informed Care and organizational development for the benefit of clients, staff, and the community.

Our services include free, confidential HIV testing; medical case management/client services; education/outreach programs; pharmacy services; food and personal products pantry; and mental health counseling.
