What Does AIN DO?
For over 25 years (Since 1986), AIN’s prevention programs have served people living with HIV/AIDS and educated the community to help reduce the risk of transmission. New HIV infections in Dallas County are at a five-year high, making prevention more important now than ever.
HIV does not discriminate on race, gender, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic circumstances. And regardless whether one is infected with HIV/AIDS, we are all affected by HIV/AIDS.

Most of our clients have incomes that range from $0 to $800 per month, and almost half are homeless or living in transitional circumstances.
