Delaware: Sussex AIDS Group Closes After 28 Years
June 30, 2009
June 30 is the final day of operations for the Sussex County AIDS Committee, which has provided HIV prevention and patient assistance programs for 28 years. "We just ran out of money," said Curt Barrows, president of the SCAC board. "Over time, we have seen less and less aid and the demand has been greater." Steve Elkins of CAMP Rehoboth said his community group is prepared to help SCAC clients connect with other agencies providing assistance. SCAC service offerings included transportation to medical appointments as far away as Philadelphia, plus a library with hundreds of media resources addressing HIV/AIDS.
