About the Organization
The AIDS Foundation of Chicago mobilizes communities to create equity and justice for people living with and vulnerable to HIV or chronic conditions. Our work is guided by the vision that people living with HIV or chronic conditions will thrive, and there will be no new HIV cases.
For over 33 years, AIDS Foundation of Chicago has brought together service providers and funders to develop systems that meet the needs of those living with HIV/AIDS and to maximize the use of scarce resources. AFC manages more than $17 million in local, state, and federal funds for an array of HIV-related services, provides expertise and leads high-quality delivery across the region, as well as housing and other services for people who are formerly homeless and living with chronic conditions.
The AIDS Foundation of Chicago is committed to diversity and ensuring an appropriate balance of skills and experience on our Board and committees. Our Board is comprised of people of different experiences, backgrounds, and opinions. We believe creating an inclusive and diverse culture improves the effectiveness of our Board and better reflects the diverse populations that we serve. We especially encourage people of color (i.e. Black, Latinx, Native American), those who identify as LGBTQ+, and individuals living with HIV to apply for a position on the Board.
