AIDS Resource is a non-profit organization that provides free HIV prevention programs, free HIV and STI testing, and assistance to those infected with, or affected by, HIV or AIDS. Founded in 1988 by community members concerned about the plight of people dying from AIDS in Lycoming County, AIDS Resource began with the mission of providing culturally-sensitive support to people infected with and affected by HIV or AIDS and to prevent further infection through education and outreach programs. As more effective treatments have dramatically increased life expectancy of those infected with HIV, the agencyâ€™s mission has expanded to include connecting clients with resources they need to live with HIV or AIDS, as well as providing prevention, education and testing to at-risk populations.
Their efforts expanded from Lycoming County into Snyder, Union, Clinton, Centre, and Potter Counties. In August 2018, their efforts expanded again and include their newest service areas: Elk, Cameron, Clearfield and McKean Counties.
