Resource Guide

Every year, we publish a Greater Philadelphia AIDS Resource Guide. The Resource Guide is full of useful organizations in the greater Philadelphia area. We include organizations that serve people living with HIV/AIDS, as well as organizations that are not HIV-specific but that might be helpful. Our focus is the Philadelphia metropolitan area, which includes surrounding counties in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. You will notice that there we have included some organizations outside of this area, especially national organizations. This publication actually contains a number of different documents. You can also download the individual PDF.
