Since 1996, GDMAF has assisted over 1,500 clients and disbursed more than $300,000 to meet needs such as rent, medication co-pays, rent or utility deposits and emergency payments to avoid loss of utilities.
Most clients are on Social Security programs and living on low, fixed incomes. For them, life’s unexpected emergencies can be catastrophic and lead to homelessness.
Your Help is Needed.
GDMAF is changing and improving lives one person at a time. Through your gifts of time and treasure, GDMAF is helping individuals living with HIV/AIDS manage their unexpected emergencies.
Your funds go to those in greatest need, but requests for assistance outpace funding. Your support of GDMAF’s annual fundraising extravaganza, MetroBall, directly benefits clients.
