AIDS Family & Youth Foundation (Alameda and Contra Costa counties) has a population of over 2.5 million residents, and is one of the most ethnically diverse in the nation. However, approximately 20% of the households live below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level, in a region with one of the highest costs of living in the nation.*
An estimated 10, 243 persons are living with HIV/AIDS in our target area, which averages out to 577 cases per 100,000 people — higher than either Los Angeles or New York!*
The HIV/AIDS epidemic continues to strike a devastating blow to the community in this region. African-American women represent only 12% of the community, however constitute nearly 66% of people living with HIV, and the great majority of these women have families that depend on them.*
Nearly 25% of all people infected with HIV in the area are women, infants, children or young persons less than 24 years of age — by far, the highest percentage in the Western United States!*
Funds for social services continue to get slashed, pushing at-risk families out of programs designed to help them stay healthy, both financially and emotionally. As HIV has transitioned to more of a long-term disease, families are struggling more than ever to survive, let alone thrive.
