Alliance for Positive Health has been a community leader for over 35 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.

  • I recently went for routine testing at the Alliance for Positive Health. I've been going there for at least 8-10 years, and it's always an enjoyable occasion. Staff are friendly, thorough, knowledgeable and sincere about a sensitive matter. The Alliance for Positive Health offers the best resources available to me, and I'm grateful to have this option.

  • 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 Real Talk program has done a number of things for me such as better communication skills, tremendous tech skill improvement and has given me a more open look on sexual health. Professionally the Real Talk program has allowed me to improve in my group chats and team building skills. What we have done for our community is to strive for sexual health to become a norm and also to let teens know they don't have to feel alone because there's many who feel the same.”

  • 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.

  • One Hudson client who completed the program this month has gone through several medical challenges over the past year and a half, such as being diagnosed with diverticulitis, and credits the Nutrition Health Education program on assisting him to remain healthy and adjust his diet to fit his new nutritional needs.
