Buddy Program

Buddy Program: ActionAIDS was founded by a group of 86 buddies and volunteers in 1986. The program is now one of the oldest and largest buddy programs in the United States and serves over 250 individuals and families each year. The program is a national model for volunteer programs. Trained volunteer buddies work closely with case managers to prevent isolation by providing emotional and practical supports through regular calls, visits, and help with the tasks of daily living.
