ACT UP / ASBURY PARK    UPDATE     January 2007


We would like to inform you that the new (HIV/AIDS) The Center is now in operation.

It is located at 806 Third Ave in Asbury Park. Besides offering a daytime program for clients complete with free daily lunches, monthly pantry, hygene, and laundry vouchers, it also offers financial assistance to those with HIV who are in need.The Center now also boasts 25 brand new living units for those with HIV who are presently in precarious housing or are homeless. So far 8 slots have been taken.

ACT UP ASBURY should be very proud of the hand we played in making this new Center a reality.We were very instramental in helping to get the Center approved after years of planning resistance from the Zoning Board.

We would like you to know that the new Center offers a beautiful courtyard complete with a waterfall and pond. There is currently a program by where anyone can donate a permanant brick which will be placed in the courtyard. This is a wonderful way to remember a loved one or a friend. The cost is 100.00 and of course the donation goes towards maintaining The Center.For more information please call The Center at 732-774-3416

Remember there are still people dying
and new drugs that are way too expensive yet to be approved.
