AIDS-Related Community Services
- Line of Business:
AIDS-Related Community Services (ARCS) is the largest organization solely dedicated to providing HIV/AIDS services to people in New York's Hudson Valley region. It was founded in 1983 by a small group of lesbian and gay citizens who refused to stand idly by in the face of government inaction as this disease devastated those they loved. Since then, the agency has grown to service the needs of over 10,000 community members annually through our locations in Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, Ulster, and Westchester counties. A professional and caring staff provides quality case management, client advocacy, emergency assistance, education, outreach, and prevention for adults, children, and families, as well as the general community. We believe in building partnerships with clients to guide them, and give them the information they need to make informed decisions for themselves.
Our core purpose is to encourage life-affirming decisions on the part of all individuals. ARCS is a stabilizing presence for Hudson Valley residents and their families facing crisis and hardship.
ARCS is the service component of the Mid-Hudson Valley AIDS Task Force, Inc. A copy of our latest annual report may be obtained, upon request, from the Finance Department, or from the Office of the Attorney General, Charities Bureau, 120 Broadway, New York, NY 10271.
