Lifelong AIDS Alliance was formed in 2001 through the merger of Chicken Soup Brigade and Northwest AIDS Foundation. We’ve come a long way since our beginnings in 1983, when a soup can was passed around Volunteer Park and collected the first $42 to help people living with HIV/AIDS in our community.
Today, we are staffers, volunteers, donors and community members from many different backgrounds. We are united in our determination to make sure that we never forget that HIV/AIDS still exists. We will be here until there is a cure.
Caring for People
Lifelong does whatever it takes to improve the lives of people living with HIV/AIDS. We provide health insurance so that people can get the care they need. We cook and deliver healthy meals. We ensure that people have a safe place to live. And our caring case managers help people every step of the way.
Preventing New Infections
Until there is a cure, preventing new AIDS infections is our best hope. Lifelong distributes hundreds of thousands of condoms each year, along with safer-sex messages aimed at stopping thousands of new infections. We also counsel those at risk of spreading or acquiring HIV.
Advocating For Change
Decisions made in Olympia and Washington, DC have a profound effect upon people living with HIV/AIDS here in Seattle/King County. We represent those living with HIV/AIDS and ensure that our voices are heard at the local, state and federal levels.
Lifelong builds a strong network of support for our programs and services. Events, like our annual Seattle AIDS Walk & 5K Run and Dining Out For Life, raise both awareness and financial support for people living with HIV/AIDS in Seattle/King County.
