AIDS Taskforce Of Greater Cleveland
Last updated on November 7, 2014

The AIDS Taskforce provides a compassionate and collaborative response to the needs of people living with, affected by, and at risk of HIV/AIDS. This is accomplished through leadership in prevention education, supportive services, and advocacy.

Description:
The AIDS Taskforce provides a comprehensive array of non-medical services for people living with HIV/AIDS. Increasingly, those services are founded on the recognition that as progress in medical care translates into increased longevity and quality of life, people with HIV/AIDS should be encouraged to “get back to the business of living” by returning to work, seeking academic or skills-based training, and developing increased levels of independence. That shift is reflected in the evolving metaphor for services: the agency is moving away from a traditional paradigm of being a “safety net” for those in need—which implies merely the prevention of catastrophic outcomes for individuals—and toward a paradigm asserting that life after diagnosis is a “journey,” and that the AIDS Taskforce's appropriate role is to serve as “outfitters for the journey.” While the provision of safety net services remains critical, it is no longer, by itself, sufficient: the AIDS Taskforce's emerging service model stresses, to the degree possible for each individual, continual growth and development.

Current services provided by the AIDS Taskforce include case management, housing, transportation services, nutritional services, support groups and psychosocial support, The David Feldt Institute (community education), prevention education services, human services capacity building and public policy education.

History:
The AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland (ATGC) was founded 25 years ago, when a group of concerned individuals in Northeast Ohio began meeting to discuss the emerging health crisis of AIDS in our community. Those conversations set the foundation for an agency now serving, each year, nearly 2,000 people with HIV/AIDS and their families, and reaching nearly 20,000 Greater Clevelanders at risk of HIV infection.
