AIDS Walk T-Shirt from the past

History

  Founded:1990

AID Gwinnett/RicCrawford Clinic, a not for profit organization, was founded in 1990 in Gwinnett County by a grass roots group of concerned parents and volunteers dealing with family members and friends infected with HIV/AIDS. They were driven to provide supportive services and prevention education.

Local medical care was a critical need for our patients. In 2003 AID Gwinnett received funding and The Ric Crawford Clinic was born. The clinic was now able to provide  high quality, compassionate patient care through a comprehensive, multidisciplinary medical staff. To date, AID Gwinnett/Ric Crawford Clinic has assisted over 2,300 patients and their families in addition to reaching  over 10,00,00 in our HIV/AIDS prevention and testing programs.

The clinic currently has a 24 member staff, 200 active volunteers, a 9 member Board of Directors and a 2.8 million dollar budget to provide supportive services and HIV prevention education.

Volunteers continue to lead the fight during this epidemic. In 2011 our volunteers donated over 2,500 hours of service with an in-kind value in excess of $53,000
