AIDS Taskforce Public Policy Department Opens New Columbus Office; Creates New Policy and Advocacy Alliance in Cincinnati
The AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland and Caracole of Cincinnati are pleased to announce a formal public policy and advocacy collaboration. More than 10 years ago, the AIDS Taskforce established the first fully funded, full time department of public policy in Ohio and has continued been the leader in federal, state and local policy and advocacy efforts in the State of Ohio. We are proud to join forces with Cincinnati’s leading provider of safe, affordable housing and supportive services for individuals and families living with HIV/AIDS.
Founded in 1987, Caracole House was the first licensed adult care facility in Ohio for people living with HIV/AIDS. Today, Caracole provides direct care services and housing to people with HIV/AIDS and their families along a continuum of care. More than 1,200 people have been housed through Caracole’s programs. The AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland is a non-profit, community based AIDS service and education organization. Established in 1983, the AIDS Taskforce is the oldest AIDS service provider in Northeast Ohio, and the primary provider in Cleveland of both community based HIV prevention education and non-medical social services to people living with HIV and AIDS.
