Now in its 35th year, Action Wellness continues to improve the lives of people with HIV/AIDS and other serious chronic illnesses by offering them health, prevention and support services. The non-profit organization was started in 1986 by a group of 84 volunteers who wanted to provide services to AIDS patients. The mission statement of the group, originally called ActionAIDS, was: “ActionAIDS believes that no one should face AIDS alone.” It grew to become one of Pennsylvania’s largest AIDS service organizations and, in 2016, expanded and rebranded to Action Wellness as part of its goal to serve an expanded base of clients. Action Wellness now has over 400 caring volunteers and 100 professional staffers who serve more than 4,000 clients a year!
