Black Lives Matter Statement

Alliance for Positive Health has been a community leader for over 37 years in providing services for those living with or affected by HIV/AIDS and other chronic illnesses. Our community is in pain. This is a time to right wrongs of the past, wrongs directed at the Black community, at all persons of color and at all persons disenfranchised by systemic injustice. All organizations can do better and must do better. The Alliance, through the combined efforts of its leadership, staff, and Board of Directors, is committed to looking inward to ensure that the work we do, our policies, staffing, and services reflects race equity and justice. Racism is a community health issue. We at Alliance not only stand with you, we will move forward with you - in peace and unity. Black lives matter. Your life matters to us. You are Alliance.

AAPI Statement

Alliance for Positive Health strongly stands with its Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) employees and community against the increasing racism and violence they are facing. We at the Alliance aim to combat the long history of racism and xenophobia against the AAPI community. As a leading health organization in Northeastern New York, the Alliance for Positive Health will remain dedicated to providing vital services to our AAPI neighbors and their families.

  • I was unable to find work because of COVID-19 and was scared to get the virus on top of my chronic illnesses. Food stamps did not get me far. The Alliance gave me gift cards which are helping me get through. I am grateful for the Alliance and the support they provide."

  • The Food4Life program has been very helpful for me personally. It is wonderful to be around a helpful, understanding, and amazing program. I feel healthier and grateful. You're all fantastic. Thank you!"

  • The security deposit assistance the Alliance gave me was a life saver. It helped me secure an apartment for my children and I. There are so many things I have to stress about and the Alliance really helps relieve some of it. I am grateful to the agency and all it has done for me."

  • I wouldn't be able to get to my doctor's appointments without your help. My care manager is always willing to help me by helping me schedule my transportation to and from the doctor."

  • I have been a client of the Alliance for Positive Health for 7 years. Without the assistance I received, I would be homeless.  I applied for housing and am now living in an apartment with my dog. I just wanted to let someone there know how grateful I am for all the services I received and what wonderful people you have working there."

  • I would like to say THANK YOU for additional assistance for helping me buy extra fresh vegetables and fruits and other essential foods that help me eat healthy. Without this wonderful program to assist me, I would have been forced to give up fresh food due to my income limitations."
