Premier Delaware ASO Closes Doors Due to Lack of Funding

After providing 28 years of prevention, outreach and education to those living with HIV, the Sussex County AIDS Committee (SCAC) in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, will close its doors on Tuesday, June 30, the Delaware Coast Press reports.

According to the article, the SCAC is operated by volunteers and it receives funding from private donations as well as some government assistance. “We just ran out of money,” said Curt Barrows, president of the SCAC board. “Over time, we have seen less and less aid and the demand has been greater.”

SCAC provided clients with financial assistance, transportation to medical appointments as far away as Philadelphia, and a resource center with books, magazines and videos on HIV-related topics.

Because of its close relationship with the AIDS committee, CAMP Rehoboth, a nonprofit community service organization that works to promote diversity, is offering to help SCAC clients who need assistance.
