The AIDS Support Group of Cape Cod saves lives through prevention, education, and life-sustaining services that address public health crises to build healthy communities across the Cape and Islands.
Our roots are in Provincetown, where in the early 1980’s community members joined together to respond to the emerging AIDS epidemic, forming what was then called Provincetown AIDS Support Group. Provincetown has the highest rate of HIV, per capita, in the Commonwealth. In Provincetown alone, ASGCC serves approximately 300 people living with HIV, as well as thousands more through our Drop-in Center, where people receive FREE HIV/STI screenings, Narcan training and distribution, and one of the two oldest syringe service programs in Massachusetts.
We save lives through prevention, education and life-sustaining services when public health crises hit. And that held true when COVID-19 struck.
While many of our services have shifted temporarily to virtual settings for these physically distant times, our Provincetown food and nutrition program continues onsite throughout the pandemic. In fact, it has expanded: since March we have delivered 50+ meals daily to homebound individuals, and we anticipate this continuing for many months ahead.
Please consider donating today. Your donation will go directly toward our services in Provincetown, which includes medical case management services, syringe and Narcan programming, substance use and recovery supports, and our year-round emergency food pantry and the aforementioned daily meals program.
We hope we can count on your support. Remember, together, we are resilient.
