ACCM Services for Clients:
The Support Services department envisions itself as a hub for a diverse community. Since its establishment in 1987, AIDS Community Care Montreal (ACCM) has played a central role in the lives of people affected by HIV and AIDS in Montreal. Today, we are expanding our programming to support those living with Hepatitis C.
Encompassing direct service provision as well as programs designed by and for people living with HIV and AIDS, our work is informed by the GIPA Principles, (the Greater Involvement of People living with HIV and AIDS). Support services are offered mainly, but not exclusively, in English.
In a commitment to dismantle serophobia and other stigma, ACCM takes pride in being an inclusive community organization that welcomes all people regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnicity, ability, religion, age, or any other factor. We adhere to a non-judgmental approach towards all who participate in ACCM’s services. Our work adheres to the principles of harm reduction, inclusivity, anti-oppressive practice, collaboration and compassion.
This department adapts to the continual evolution of the experience of living with HIV, AIDS, and Hepatitis C. Our programs enhance quality of life, break isolation, empower people living with HIV, AIDS, and Hepatitis C, dissolve stigma, and engender peer support. We achieve this through psycho-social support, an emphasis on the practical needs of people living with HIV, AIDS, and Hepatitis C, as well as ensuring access to information resources and appropriate referrals.
