Financial Trouble for AIDS Group in Tennessee County

Financial difficulties have hit the Clarksville Area Ministers Technical Assistance Network (CAMTAN), a nonprofit faith-based group that provides HIV/AIDS services in Montgomery County, Tennessee, The Leaf Chronicle reports.

Providing HIV testing and education, as well as transportation and gas vouchers to visit doctors, CAMTAN is one of the few resources available to people with HIV/AIDS in the county.

"The Lord has given us a little to do a lot," said CAMTAN's director, the Rev. James W. Hill Jr. "Even if I don't get the money, I'm going to make sure people get to their [medical] appointments."

According to the article, CAMTAN has special outreach to the African-American community, which represents more than 50 percent of HIV/AIDS cases in the county.

"We open the door to those with HIV, and we don't discriminate," Hill said.
