Construction on our new home is complete and we have moved in!  Our new home at 240 North Ave is now open, and we are excited to see our clients in the new space!  Enter through the front door on North Ave, take the stairs or elevator to the 2nd floor, and check in at the window to the right as you enter the waiting area.

This new facility has been 10 years in the making.  Now that work has been completed we are looking forward to working with our ARCH partners to expand services to local individuals and families who are most in need.

Athens Eats cover

The Athens EATS Cookbook has arrived!

This book is a compilation of recipes from Athens-area restaurants and many individuals in our community. Recipes were collected over the course of the last 8 years by AIDS Athens board members, staff, and volunteers. We are delighted that Athens Eats – Recipes from the Classic City can finally be in your hands.

Many restaurant owners, chefs, and community members not only pour their passion into their food but also into our community by supporting countless nonprofit agencies in our town. We thank everyone who made a contribution to Athens Eats.

When you buy this book and make these dishes in your home, know that you are helping the clients of AIDS Athens with housing, medication, and help reduce the stigma and discrimination people with HIV/AIDS still face every day.   Order your copy online today!
