AIDS Services of Austin (ASA) is prepared to serve HIV positive persons displaced due to Hurricane Harvey. Available services include Housing Assistance, food and hygiene items from our Helping Hands Food Bank, Case Management of disease, Health Insurance Assistance, and Legal Services. ASA has staff at evacuation centers providing support and information.
A vendor for our Food Bank, H-E-B is greatly impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Although we have a stock of necessary items to distribute, our ability to purchase items from their distribution centers is limited. We are anticipating an increase in Food Bank need and are asking the community to help us provide the following to our clients:
- Tampons & Pads
- Trash Bags
- Disinfectant Wipes
- Ready to Eat Foods
- First Aid Supplies
- Contact Lens Cases & Solution
- Hand Sanitizer
- Toothbrushes & Paste
We are prepared to accept donations Monday-Friday during regular agency operating hours of 8:30 am to 5:30 pm at our Cameron Road location. Please contact ASA with any question at 512-458-AIDS (2437) or www.asaustin.org.
