PATF is now Allies for Health + Wellbeing. Our new website is under construction...stay tuned!

History 

In 1985, a group of dedicated volunteers (allies) led by Kerry Stoner formed the Pittsburgh AIDS Task Force (PATF) in response to a cry from those infected with HIV/AIDS for compassion, supportive services, and information about the disease.

In its infancy, the agency offered the Legal Advocacy program to fight discrimination, as well as emotional and practical support to those who were dying from AIDS through what became known as the Buddy Program.  Incorporated as a not-for-profit 501(c) (3) organization in March 1986, PATF existed as an all-volunteer agency until March 1988, when the organization hired founder, Kerry Stoner as its first Executive Director. 

As medical treatments improved and our understanding of HIV/AIDS advanced, our services evolved and expanded to meet the changing needs of the community.  Our services now include a medical clinic, PrEP services, medical case management, HIV, hepatitis and STI  testing and counseling, a food pantry, transportation, and emergency fund assistance, housing, and prevention and educational outreach.

Now in our third decade of service, Allies for Health + Wellbeing has progressed from an agency that helped people with AIDS to die with dignity into an agency that helps people living iwht or at risk of HIV/AIDS live healthier lives.  We are the oldest and largest AIDS service organization in Southwestern Pennsylvania and currently serve clients in Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Cambria, Fayette, Greene, Indiana, Somerset, Washington, Westmoreland counties.
