About AFWM

The AIDS Foundation of Western Massachusetts (AFWM) was founded to provide emergency financial assistance to those in our communities who are limited as a direct or indirect result of HIV/AIDS. The organization also helps children who are infected or affected by HIV/AIDS attend the summer camp of their choice through our Camperships Program, providing a sense of normalcy and relief from day-to-day stressors of living with HIV/AIDS. Now in its twentieth year, AFWM has expanded its mission. Educating our communities about HIV/AIDS in order to decrease stigma and prevent the spread of the disease is a clear priority. We also provide referral services and information to help people living with HIV/AIDS to maintain their health and dignity. This is accomplished through:

  • The Living Positive Men’s Support Group;
  • Participation in community health and wellness events
  • Speaking engagements and presentations
