The ASO is often the primary caregiver to persons living with AIDS. It may be the place that a person is first diagnosed with HIV, and it may provide every type of service a person with AIDS may need for the rest of his/her life, including funeral arrangements. From the first one-on-one caregiver situations to the current multi-million dollar budgeted agencies, ASOs have been helping persons living with AIDS maintain a sense of dignity in their lives by providing assistance in dealing with the HIV/AIDS pandemic on a personal, daily level.
