We serve the following counties: Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Cambria, Fayette, Greene, Indiana, Somerset, Washington, and Westmoreland.

Food Pantry

Our Food Pantry is open on Sundays noon - 4 p.m. Weekday hours are Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, noon – 4 p.m., and Wednesday, 3 – 7 p.m. Certified clients are able to use the food pantry once per month.

A variety of foods and personalized customer service are the hallmarks of PATF’s Food Pantry.  If you are living with HIV/AIDS, you can choose from a selection of meat, cheese, produce, and canned goods.  Nutritional supplements and personal care items are also provided when available. Medical case managers also deliver groceries to rural areas and to people who are too ill to visit the pantry.

Support Groups

Coping skills, facing life’s challenges and developing support systems are just a few of the benefits HIV-positive individuals gain from attending regularly scheduled meetings. Groups focus on the needs or concerns that impact daily life for those living with HIV/AIDS.  Support groups take place once a month in Beaver, Butler, and Washington counties. Please email us for times and details.

Please Note: Support groups do not meet if the our office is closed for business that day.
