When & Where
New Mexico AIDS Services
New Mexico AIDS Services (NMAS) is a 501(c)3 non-profit community based organization whose mission is to enhance the quality of life for people and communities affected by HIV/AIDS through innovative and comprehensiveservices, support, and prevention education.
NMAS operates under the guidance and leadership of a Board of Directors, 29 employees, and over 150 volunteers who fulfill the mission of the agency. NMAS provides high quality and non-judgmental science-based health promotion, with disease prevention interventions that are focused on the community, the family, and the client.
NMAS was started by a group of concerned citizens in response to the growing problem of HIV/AIDS throughout the state. The desperate need for HIV prevention and direct care services quickly became evident, and the group incorporated as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
In 1997 new trends in HIV treatment shifted client needs away from acute care services towards practical/psycho/social services. These services include case management, home care services, housing, nutritional assistance and vocational rehabilitation. New approaches to prevention and education are necessary in order to meet the ever changing needs of the client and the community. After years on the front lines in the battle against AIDS, NMAS has grown to meet the needs of people impacted by HIV/AIDS in our communities.
