Delaware HIV/AIDS Organization Forced to Close After 28 Years
June 18, 2009
A Delaware-based organization that has provided HIV/AIDS prevention, outreach, education and other services for the past 28 years will be closing due to lack of funding, the Bethany Beach Wave reports. The Sussex County AIDS Committee (SCAC) also provided financial assistance, transportation services and assistance with medical appointments to people living with HIV/AIDS from as far as Philadelphia, according to the Wave. SCAC was funded by both private and government funding. "We just ran out of money," Curt Barrows, president of the SCAC board, said. CAMP Rehoboth, another local organization, said it will step in to assist SCAC clients (Shockley, Bethany Beach Wave, 6/18).
