Incorporated in Winston-Salem, North Carolina in 1991, AIDS Care Service is the longest continuously operating AIDS Service Organization in Forsyth County. We are a nonprofit health and social services agency providing a broad range of programs and services for clients throughout Northwest NC infected and affected by HIV/AIDS. Our service area includes Forsyth, Davidson, Davie, Stokes, Surry and Yadkin Counties.

Our Holly Haven facility offers round-the-clock "family-style" residential services for persons living with advanced HIV disease, including meals, activities, medication administration, housekeeping, and personal care, along with support for their families and loved ones.

Our Housing Program provides temporary/transitional housing in our Horseshoe Apartments, assistance with finding affordable permanent housing, and emergency funding for assistance with rent and utilities.

The ACS Medical Case Management team works directly with HIV+
clients to help them gain access to primary healthcare and medications, and creates a link to a broad range of health and social services to ensure that each client gets the best care possible.

The ACS Food Pantry supplies free groceries to hundreds of low-income HIV+ individuals and their families, along with nutritional information, and recipes to promote and maintain healthy living.

Positive Action Club Support Groups are safe and confidential meetings led by professional facilitators to share information, experience and knowledge, and to build mutually supportive emotional and social networks.

Risk Counseling combines individually focused prevention activities and programs designed to reduce HIV infection rates by educating HIV+ persons and at-risk populations about safer lifestyle choices and behaviors, and increasing participation in medical care and medication adherence.

The ACS staff includes native Spanish speakers to address the needs of the Latino community with cultural sensitivity.
