Donations from private foundations, corporations and individuals have supported direct services to families such as educational scholarships, nutrition support and housing assistance; building renovations for HIV clinic start-ups; community wide HIV awareness and  youth prevention programs;  support for local, state and national policy makers to develop comprehensive HIV strategies, public messaging and counseling and testing initiatives, and much more.
