ANNOUNCEMENT: AIDS Partnership Michigan and HIV/AIDS Resource Center to Merge
In order to strengthen the response to HIV in Southeast Michigan, AIDS Partnership Michigan (APM) and HIV/AIDS Resource Center (HARC) have merged. Together, we are uniting to serve Southeast Michigan through innovation, shared resources and expertise.
Together, APM and HARC will serve ten counties with a population of nearly five million residents and where 63% of people living with HIV reside. The merger will enhance our capacity in key areas, including programming, access to funding, community-based research, and delivery of HIV-related health care services.
Rest assured, there will be no interruption or change to services provided and services will continue to be delivered from the three existing offices in Detroit, Ypsilanti, and Jackson. The current staff of both organizations will work together to fulfill our mission.
A marketing firm is working with our new organization on rebranding, which will include a new name, logo and website to be launched later this year. We will be calling upon our supporters, volunteers, clients and community partners to provide important input to help us through this process. We will also have regular updates on the merger on our current website and will continue to operate as APM and HARC until we have a new name.
An expanded geographic and service scope will provide leverage to ensure sustainability of HIV and related health care services, resulting in continued access and improved health outcomes for clients in Southeast Michigan. Thank you for supporting HARC and your dedication to the health of our community and for your valued partnership with HARC.
