Reflecting on the progress we’ve made towards Ending the Epidemic

December is always a busy time at God’s Love We Deliver. We are fresh from delivering our Thanksgiving Feast to our 8,000 clients, and we move quickly into preparation for our Winter Feast. While there is a lot to celebrate this month, we make sure to take a moment on World AIDS day to reflect on the journey we’ve been on over the last 34 years and look forward to the future where ending the epidemic seems more and more realistic.

When God’s Love opened its doors in 1984, we were treating what seemed like an unstoppable epidemic, and we suffered a lot of loss during that time. Research and scientific advancements have come along way, even in the last 20 years, making it possible for people to live fulfilling and healthful lives with HIV. God’s Love We Deliver is proud to have continued its mission and has evolved with all the research and developments. God’s Love We Deliver is not only able to support people living with HIV but is also able to support them as they age and move through the trajectory of their illness.

Just last month, God’s Love was invited to present on the history of our program in serving people living with HIV at the New York State Ending the Epidemic Summit in Albany New York. This conference gave us the opportunity to reflect on where we have been and where we are going in the future. See our conference poster here. While much has changed at God’s Love We Deliver over the years, when you walk through our doors you can see that we have not forgotten where we came from. From humble beginnings of delivering one meal to one client living with HIV to 2 million meals to 8,000 clients, we remain a strong advocate in the fight to End the Epidemic.
