VISION & MISSION
ACCM envisions a society free from the stigma of HIV/AIDS. We are committed to building a community where all people living with or affected by HIV/AIDS receive the support they need. We are dedicated to empowering individuals to make informed decisions related to their health. ACCM is a volunteer-based community organization working to enhance the quality of life of people living with HIV/AIDS, to prevent HIV transmission, and to promote community awareness and action.

HIV & STI FACTS
STIs and HIV are potential risks of unprotected sex, but by arming yourself with clear and correct info you can make informed decisions about your sex life. Here you will find a summary of the most common STIs and more details about HIV. It’s important to remember that HIV and STIs usually don’t show any symptoms until late in their progress, so the ONLY way to be sure of your status is to get tested at a clinic – see our link on Testing for more info.

In 1987, ACCM was run by a group of volunteers and although we have grown since, we still very much depend on the work of our wonderful volunteers. Without their time and effort, it would have been impossible for us to develop the wide range of programs and services that we continue to run today. We are always looking for people to join us, so take a look at the volunteer opportunities we currently have and find out how you can get involved!

ACCM is thrilled to announce that Yellow Door Choir has very generously offered to donate all the proceeds of their upcoming concert to ACCM! In addition, we’ll be running a bake sale at intermission and need help feeding the hungry audience!
