ARG has been providing needed resources to the community for decades
WCIP President, Yvon Lauren, and the entire WCIP Board of Directors appreciate the continued services provided by ARG under the supervision of Executive Directory, Stacey Easley. We congratulate the entire ARG staff and volunteers for 35 years of ARG service to the entire community.
Starting in 1986, ARG has grown to provide a wide array of services for those in our community, offering free testing, counseling, risk/harm reduction presentations/education/ supplies, safer sex materials, housing assistance, a food pantry, and more. They have a highly trained staff equipped to counsel and aid those who have or are at risk for developing HIV/AIDS and hepatitis C. ARG works to educate the community on the stigmas associated with these conditions and what we all can do to change perspectives within our community.
