Illinois: BEHIV Celebrates 20
August 10, 2010
At a private home in Chicago's Rogers Park neighborhood recently, donors and supporters marked the 20th anniversary of Better Existence with HIV. Executive Director Eric Nelson said that despite the poor economy and scarcity of state funding, BEHIV is moving forward with plans to assist new clients: "We've added three new housing units for HIV patients. There are more people who have needed help than ever before." Founded in 1989, BEHIV helps people with HIV/AIDS by providing prevention information, testing, case management, housing assistance, and other services. For more information, visit www.behiv.org.
