Founded in 1997 as a weekly support group for group of Richmond residents infected or affected by HIV, The Heart of Richmond AIDS Society has grown to provide a multitude of support services to people living with HIV/AIDS in the Richmond area.
In addition to its ongoing support groups, the Society also provides grocery vouchers and assistance with health expenses that are not covered by a medical plan through its supplemental health fund. The Society works with a number of other Richmond agencies and is active in prevention and awareness initiatives and provides a variety of online resources.
Each year the Society hosts Heart and Soul, its annual fundraiser. The 2010 event will take place on Saturday, October 23rd at the Richmond Country Club hosted by Fred Lee and Sophie Lui. For more information on Heart and Soul 2010 visit http://www.heartandsoulfundraiser.com.
