A Letter From Our Directors

It may be difficult to imagine the first eight months of the 2019/2020 fiscal year, the time we longingly refer to as “BP” or before the pandemic. Yet, during that time, the staff at AHP were busy doing this mission-driven work: caring for clients, designing trainings, hiring staff, holding fundraisers, and producing four-star monitoring reports. We rolled out our new black and brown inclusive rainbow stripe logo, installed a contemporary reception desk, and began an intensive trauma-based training for our counselors. When the pandemic hit, many of our staff and clients were traumatized by memories of the fear, uncertainty and loss during the AIDS epidemic. With inspiring strength, we witnessed them transform their worry into action to respond to another pandemic.

Our 2020 story, like so many, is one of fortitude: of a world- class team, the wild resiliency of clients and the stepping up of our donors. With dedication, ingenuity, and resourcefulness the staff responded to the pandemic rapidly to keep our clients safely in care, while swiftly developing systems for onsite appointments and work-from- home rotations, finding technology for themselves and our clients to institute telehealth. Meanwhile, our remote team members squirreled away in tiny apartments, with children, roommates, and noisy neighbors, in search of privacy. It became abundantly clear, that the staff is laser-focused on making sure our clients are well taken care of.

During the early summer, as we watched another era of racial reckoning fuse following the murders of George Floyd Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery; we asked ourselves, “What can we do to contribute to anti-racism?” The staff organized “Pride is Protest” for our annual LGBTQ Pride event. We then hired a consultant to guide our entire organization in the long overdue process of addressing power, privilege and white supremacist policies. We are on the journey to become a passionate anti-racist organization.

This period has taught us so much about the people getting care at AHP, those working here and about ourselves. We are all connected in this world and need one another to make things better. We are better because of you.
