Elton John Aids Foundation Press Release

The Alamo Area Resource Center (AARC) is pleased to announce the opening of its Lesbian, Gay Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Health Equity Clinic in San Antonio, the first non-profit clinic for LGBT health services in South Texas, funded by the Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF).

Throughout its 27 year history, AARC has sought to provide innovative and timely services to a broad spectrum of the San Antonio and South Texas community. In the past ten years, AARC has been a recipient of four Special Projects of National Significance (SPNS) grants, and has set the standard for providing the “single point of care” services model, highlighting co-located programs linked by transportation. This model has proven effective in reducing those who drop of out care and increased medical adherence for our clients to a record rate in San Antonio and has been recognized nationally by the Health Services and Resources Administration (HRSA). AARC will begin accepting new patients beginning July 5th, 2016.

With the combined vision of AARC, the LGBT Health Equity Clinic, and the Elton John AIDS Foundation, AARC has reached another milestone on the way to delivering comprehensive, culturally sensitive and compassionate services to the LGBT community in San Antonio.
