Friends Without Barriers (Amigos)

DEAR FRIENDS:

A heartfelt thanks and appreciation to everyone who sponsored me in the AIDS Walk. Also, thank you to the Walkers who made it happen!

The funds raised will be used to continue providing food, staples, and other necessities to men, women, and children who live below the poverty level.

We couldn’t do it without you. You are wonderful!

Si se puede! Thank you again!

Peace and goodness,

Alma L. Martinez
President/Founder

 

APPROACH

Amigos takes a holistic approach for the treatment of HIV and AIDS, addressing issues such as language barriers, lack of education, and limited resources.

Our mission is twofold:

  1. To prevent the spread of HIV and AIDS through aggressive outreach and education in the community, and
  2. To enhance the lives of persons living with this disease.

Amigos unites with community churches, schools, health centers, and other interested groups to identify needs and to develop a plan of action to meet those needs.

As our name implies, Amigos offers acceptance and sensitivity to the special needs of our members in a non-intrusive environment.
