New York: HIV/AIDS Center Closed After a Fire Set to Reopen

December 29, 2010

On Monday, the Schenectady Damien Center will reopen at its 615 Nott St. address. The drop-in center offers support services daily to about 20 Capital Region individuals and families affected by HIV/AIDS. An electrical fire in its attic last month shut down Nott Street operations, which were scaled back and moved during the interim to Emmanuel Friedens Church at 218 Nott Terr., Schenectady. Work is almost complete on renovations for smoke and water damage, said Daniel Butterworth, the center's program director. The program is part of the Schenectady Inner City Ministry.
