TPAN's Commitment and Your Support
Greetings from beautiful Chicago where fall is around the corner and the grass is (mostly) green. I hope you are well.
You’re probably well aware of non-profits that have struggled and re-imagined their work during the pandemic, and TPAN is no different. Their resilience and commitment to their mission and those they serve has never wavered and as such, they continue to serve those who need it most AND create new and innovative ways to meet people where they are.
Since the COVID-19 crisis began, TPAN has re-invigorated their commitment to serve their clients and help keep their community safe - their providers have delivered telehealth and remote services to hundreds of Chicagoans. For their clients and community members living with or affected by HIV, they place their well-being, safety, and quality of care above all else.
In June of this year, TPAN proudly re-opened their doors to return to limited onsite services, with new ways of scheduling care and safely navigating visits for programs like: Housing Navigation, Medical Case Management, HIV testing, HCV testing, and PrEP consultation services, The HART program (syringe exchange) and the Tea Room Youth Center.
Sunday September 12th will be my 5th Ride for Aids Chicago. I’ll ride 100+ miles in honor of those living with HIV/AIDS. I’ve made that commitment, along with a few dollars, and I hope you are inspired to pitch in as well.
Most who access TPAN’s services are low-income LGBT individuals and people of color – community members most impacted by the pandemic. Your donation supports direct care and services where they’re needed most.
Please consider a tax-deductible gift today – while you may not be able to see the impact of your gift, please know that you have my sincere gratitude and the gratitude of the thousands who rely on TPAN for essential health services.
PS learn more about TPAN’s work including justice for black lives, transgender rights and how support dogs help LGBT teens’ mental health.
Through the Ride for Life Chicago, thousands of donors and more than 300 volunteer cyclists, advocates, crew, and team members help provide care to 2,000 people every year in Chicago and a lifeline of HIV health and treatment information to more than 100,000 people across the country. Our mission is to empower all lives affected by HIV and its many health challenges. The name “Ride for Life” reflects this event’s powerful impact: every mile, every donation and sponsorship, and every volunteer helps save lives through the work of TPAN and our community partners.
