Other ways to donate, support, or volunteer

In addition to supporting AVOL’s basic operations, private donations to AVOL and fundraising provide additional prevention supplies like sexual safety kits, needle cleaning kits, and additional HIV and Hepatitis screening kits.

For those living with HIV in our community, private funds help cover household furnishings and new household set up, moving expenses, emergency food, emergency rent or utility payments, emergency transportation, and other support that helps move families out of crisis.

This year as a result of the strength of the our community’s support of AVOL, we will be introducing a more complete offering of STI screenings as well as initiating a mobile HIV testing clinic.

Your generosity and support of AVOL makes our continued work possible. Help us continue to fight the spread of the disease and support HIV-positive patients and clients so they too can lead happier, healthier lives.

Statements
Mission Statement AVOL Kentucky collaborates with communities to END HIV in the Commonwealth.
Background Statement AVOL Kentucky is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides services to individuals who are medically vulnerable including those living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. AVOL also provides outreach, prevention education, and testing for HIV, Hepatitis C, and other sexually transmitted infections throughout Kentucky. Founded by a group of volunteers over 30 years ago, AVOL Kentucky continues being a leader in meeting the needs and combatting stigma for those affected by devastating health conditions. 
Impact Statement
During 2019, AVOL provided direct financial assistance and supportive services to over 300 families impacted by specific medical conditions living in central and eastern Kentucky to stabilize housing and prevent homelessness.  
 
AVOL also administered over 1,300 free HIV tests and provided education and outreach to Kentucky's most at-risk communities.
Needs Statement
AVOL's most pressing needs are tools that will allow us to better connect with the communities we serve where they live:
  
1. Rural Outreach and Connection to Care. Many rural Kentuckians living with HIV/AIDS experience disproportionate barriers to care than their counterparts living in Fayette County.  Stable housing and access to medical care are critical needs.  The cost of a comprehensive Rural Outreach and Connection to Care program is estimated at $225K/year.
 
3. Personal Hygiene Items and Household Goods.  Federal grants have disallowed the purchase of items like deodorant and toilet paper.  AVOL's clients often live on $800 or less a month and assistance with these types of goods is critical.  Donations of new, unused products welcome.
 
4. Transportation.  AVOL's clients have persistent transportation challenges in accessing care. Bus passes and gas cards are $15-$20/ea.
 
5. Community Outreach.  Continue to foster relationships with the community to engage and educate about AVOL's mission.  Re-energize our presence and success with a growing volunteer and internship program that will assist us in building awareness and overcoming stigma.

Description
AVOL operates two housing facilities for people living with HIV/AIDS.
Rainbow Apartments help clients who are homeless or imminently homeless transition into stable permanent housing.
Solomon House is a community residence for clients, which provides round the clock CNA staffing and enhanced supportive services. 
Budget 1300000
Category Housing, General/Other Affordable Housing
Population Served People/Families of People with HIV/AIDS
Program Success Monitored By Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government, US Department of Housing and Urban Development 
Examples of Program Success By providing stable housing, AVOL has ensured that clients who are imminently homeless or who have debilitating health issues have easy access to healthcare and the stability necessary to adhere to care plans that maintain health. 
Description AVOL offers a range of housing subsidy and supportive housing programs including Shelter Plus Care, Tenant Based Rental Assistance (TBRA), KY HEARTH 'On Your Feet' Program, Short-Term Mortgage/Rent and Utility Assistance, and Permanent Housing Placement. 
Budget 500000
Category Housing, General/Other Housing Expense Assistance
Population Served People/Families of People with HIV/AIDS
Program Success Monitored By Kentucky Housing Corporation, Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government, and U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. 
Examples of Program Success In 2011, AVOL served over 400 families living with HIV/AIDS in central and eastern Kentucky.  Over 300 families received housing assistance which prevented them from becoming homeless. 
Description AVOL offers free HIV testing as well as education and outreach to high-risk communities in 72 counties in central and eastern Kentucky. 
Budget 225000
Category Health Care, General/Other Sexuality Education
Population Served Adults, Lesbian, Gays, Bisexuals, Transgendered, Minorities
Program Long term Success For less that $1, AVOL can provide someone with a 'free' safe sex kit.  A 'free' HIV test equals roughly $20.  In comparison, projected lifetime medical costs for a person with HIV (once in care) can exceed $385,000.  When low-income individuals can't pay, health care costs increase for everyone. 
Program Success Monitored By Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services, HIV/AIDS Branch and the Centers for Disease Control 
Examples of Program Success In 2011, AVOL administered over 850 free HIV tests to high risk individuals in central and eastern Kentucky.  The CDC considers an HIV testing initiative to be effective if returning a 1% reactivity rate.  AVOL in 2011 had between 2%-3% reactivity for all tests administered.
