About Caring Communities

Caring Communities
Caring Communities has received the 2010 Community Advocacy Award from the Bloomsburg University LGBT Commission, an honor we’re quite proud of! Our staff and board has received certifications related to the field of HIV/AIDS including HIV Testing and Counseling certification, Project RESPECT DEBI certification, phlebotomy, nursing and drug/alcohol education certifications. Caring Communities For AIDS is a non-profit, community-based AIDS Service Organization (ASO) located in Wilkes-Barre and Berwick, Pennsylvania. Originally, in 1991, our agency began as an informal, grassroots organization in response to the local HIV/AIDS need. The organization, located in Danville, Pennsylvania at the time, was comprised primarily of people who either had HIV/AIDS or were concerned citizens who directly observed the stigma and lack of resources for people who were infected with HIV/AIDS in Columbia and Montour Counties.
