  • FIND IT.


    BEAT IT.

    ANNUAL REPORT2012 - 2013

  • Dear friends,

    During this past fiscal year, your support of Pittsburgh AIDS Task Force has once again provided our clients with resources to face the significant challenges of living with HIV/AIDS. On behalf of the Board of Directors, I thank you for your generosity, and more importantly, for your commitment to fight this disease.

    The fight against HIV is far from over. We may have the tools available to prevent the spread of HIV, but we still lack many resources to sustain prevention programs in our community. PATF needs your support to offer these programs, and more importantly, to continue a dialogue to build awareness about how HIV affects our community now and how to respond to the face of HIV in the future.

    With your support, I am confident that PATF can continue to find those infected with HIV, even in the most hard to reach demographic, and bring those who have been lost to care back into treatment. If, at the heart of winning the fight against HIV is preventing HIV, then the soul of the fight is all of us this community, in this region which must be strong, tenacious, persistent, committed and united in beating HIV.

    We simply cant do it without you. Your ongoing support will help us Find It, Treat It, Beat It.


    Bart Rauluk PATF Board President

    Dear friends,

    Greetings! I hope you will be inspired by Pittsburgh AIDS Task Forces 2012-13 Annual Report. This is our opportunity to share highlights and evaluation of our work over the past year with you. So many positive changes happened over the last year, including the addition of a Nurse Case Manager and the launch of our newest outreach program that seeks out individuals living with HIV who have not been in regular medical care or maintaining a healthy medication regimen. Research indicates that only about 25 percent of all people infected with HIV are successfully fighting their disease. Even more of those infected are unaware of their diagnosis. The best science is telling us that HIV testing is vital and should be a routine part of health care so that all people

    who are HIV-positive can know their status and access care. Research also shows that keeping HIV positive individuals in their homes and in treatment reduces the amount of virus in the body, making transmission to others less likely. Thus, our plan of action FIND IT, TREAT IT, BEAT IT!!

    Support from friends like you made all of this possible. We look forward to a new year where we continue our work together to Find It, Treat It, and Beat It.


    Charles L. Christen, DrPH, MEd PATF Executive Director


  • June 2, 2013 marked the 20th anniversary of the passing of Kerry Stoner, one of the founding members of the Pittsburgh AIDS Task Force. The oldest son of Dick and Marjorie, Stoner grew up on a dairy farm in Westmoreland County. After graduating from Washington and Jefferson University and coming out to his parents, he decided against his earlier dream of becoming an English teacher. Stoner moved to Pittsburgh and became the manager at the Crossover, a local gay night club. Kerry became very active in the gay community during the early days of AIDS, facilitating the communication between local bar owners and researchers at the Pitt Mens Study at the University of Pittsburgh. When the community advisory board of that study suggested the creation of a service organization for people suffering and dying from this mysterious disease, Stoner volunteered his services. In March of 1985, the first public meeting of the Pittsburgh AIDS Task Force was held. The all-volunteer organization was formed by Stoner and four fellow members of the Pitt Mens Study Community Advisory Board

    due to the lack of social support services and information available about the deadly disease named by the Centers for Disease Control as Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome--AIDS.

    People were dying at an alarming rate, and there were little to no services available to them, with misinformation running rampant about the disease and how it was contracted. The founding members of PATF decided the organization should help all people affected by AIDS, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation. Eighteen volunteers, including doctors, nurses, therapists, clergy, laborers, artists and students formed the committees necessary to provide these vital services and to form the front line in the battle to educate the community on the nature of the disease and how to prevent the spread of infection.

    In 1987, Stoner was hired as the first executive director and led PATFs first annual benefit, titled Heres What Friends Are For, encapsulating the humble yet powerful spirit that drove the work of PATFs earliest efforts. The offering of case management, testing and counseling soon followed. A food pantry was added in 1992 and later that year Stoner released a statement that he had been diagnosed with AIDS two years earlier and was stepping down from his position.

    Kerry had become the face and the voice of the epidemic in the Pittsburgh region and he worked tirelessly, talking to anyone who would listen about the disease and its effects on the community. After his departure from PATF, Stoner was honored for his dedication and passion when the Pittsburgh City Council declared March 30, 1992 as Kerry Stoner Day.

    In 1993, Kerry Stoner died from complications related to AIDS at his home in Highland Park surrounded by his family and friends. He was only 39 years old.

    His legacy of caring lives on today through the many individuals that carry on the work of PATF, from individual staff and volunteers to partner organizations and the communities we serve. The spirit of Kerry Stoners passion and commitment to supporting and empowering those living with HIV/AIDS permeates all that we do and will continue until we have won the fight, once and for all, against this disease.

    In Memory of Kerry Stoner

  • Values

    In the tradition of PATFs caring founders, we will continue to employ these ethics and values: Compassion, Confidentiality, Courtesy, Dignity, Excellence, Integrity, and Respect for Diversity


    Pittsburgh AIDS Task Force will continue as the premier, community-based AIDS service organization in Southwestern Pennsylvania. We empower people living with HIV/AIDS to live their lives to the fullest as valued, respected, and participating members of the community. We are committed to stopping the spread of HIV infections.


    The Pittsburgh AIDS Task Force is dedicated to supporting and empowering all individuals living with HIV/AIDS and preventing the spread of infections.

    Through compassionate and caring work we respond to the disease in all its diversity by:

    Providing seamless, integrated services to individuals and families living with HIV/AIDS, including direct services, housing, referrals, and advocacy;

    Delivering innovative, targeted outreach and education programs to those at risk of infection;

    Taking leadership in collaborating with other organizations to achieve mutual goals.

    Knowing ones status, staying in treatment, and reducing the level of HIV in the body makes it much harder to transmit the virus to others.

  • FIND IT!PATF believes that finding those infected

    is the first step in beating this disease. This year, we extended our rapid testing hours to

    6 days a week and found new venues for testing in the community. PATF also

    became certified to train others in the community to be HIV testing counselors.




    2010-11 2012-132011-12

    Prevention!FIND IT! with PATF committed to filling in

    care gaps for the most vulnerable people living with HIV with the addition of Aaron Arnold, Services Outreach Coordinator. The Services Outreach Coordinator meets with HIV-positive individuals out in the community, many who are ready to become PATF clients for the first time, many others who are former clients that are

    ready to re-engage, and some others who are

    simply relieved to have someone else helping them to stay healthy and in medical care. Aaron works closely with many groups such as the House Ball Community, which largely consists of black MSM and trans-identified individuals, and builds upon PATFs relationships with these populations for both prevention and care purposes. Aaron has already scheduled many testing events at various venues and events, worked to take over case management of HIV-positive inmates and prevention activities in the Allegheny County jail, and collaborated with Operation Safety Net and Prevention Point Pittsburgh to increase testing rates among homeless and intravenous drug using populations.

  • OVER 15,000 PEOPLE


    +11%Prevention and outreach efforts

    helped PATF educate and inform over 600 more people in 2012-13

    than in the previous year.


    Our signature outreach to young women, the Girl Talk

    Project, gained a new look and a fresh focus

    on its mission. Girl Talk is unique because it focuses solely on young girls in our community at the age when they are learning skills and gathering experiences that will inform the rest of their lives. There are no boys allowed, allowing girls to feel free to openly discuss sexual health. Often in schools there is a tendency to give more attention to male students, and it is so important to make sure girls are fully absorbing the information they need and have the knowledge to stay safe and healthy. We are able to show participants the difference between myth and truth surrounding STDs, high risk sexual behaviors, and domestic violence. We are proud and passionate about this program because we believe that girls need to understand how to keep themselves safe. By teaching a girl how to protect herself and how to think about sexual health, she will be able to talk with confidence about these issues with her friends and better educate her peers. She can empower herself by stopping the flow of misinformation. With this knowledge and support, she has the tools to grow up healthier and happier, creating a new generation of empowered women.

    Pittsburgh AIDS Task Force continued its Girlfriends Project, a nationally recognized ground-breaking program that empowers women, teaching them to protect themselves and their health. Headed by Pamela Smith, Girlfriends Project Liaison, our mission is to increase HIV awareness among African American women to reduce the rate of infection among that population and African Americans as a whole. How do we do this? Women volunteer to host informal, health- education parties for friends. The parties focus on: HIV/AIDS education; domestic violence education; information, referral and resources; free HIV testing and counseling; and offer incentives for party hosts and guests.

    Pamela Smith, Girlfriends Outreach Liaison

    PATF wrapped up the research part of its M2M Project, but will continue the project as an outreach to young black LGBT persons, providing a safe space that is reflective of who they are, to empower them in that identity, and to provide important health information and testing.

    Since 2009, the project enrolled over 400 participants with over half of participants completing all four interventions.

    60 percent of participants were black, with 70 percent indentifying themselves as any category other than white.

    By the end of the project, 98 percent of participants had been tested for HIV.

  • PATF added a full time Food Pantry Coordinator to ensure quality and consistency

    One of the most popular services offered here at Pittsburgh AIDS Task Force is our food pantry! Food products, nutritional supplements, and personal care items can go a long way in improving the quality of life for people living with HIV. It also offers us a great opportunity to spend time with our clients on a regular basis. We get a chance to talk about peoples lives and making healthy

    choices while providing people with things they want and need. People should be able to access good nutritional choices no matter their income. Our food pantry is an important part of our larger strategy to support those living with HIV in Southwest Pennsylvania.The PATF Food Pantry is open five days a week, closed only on Thursdays and Saturdays. Clients visit the food pantry once a month, where they choose from a selection of meats, cheeses, produce, and canned goods. In additional to food items, nutritional supplements and personal care items are also available, which is not the case at most food pantries. Case managers also deliver groceries to rural areas and to those too ill to visit the pantry themselves.

    Michael Sheets, Food Pantry Coordinator

    TeOnna Ross and Anitra Branch, Medical Case Managers, help unload a food pantry delivery.

    PATF added a Nurse Case Manager to better serve our more medically complex clients

    PATF added a Nurse Case Manager, Deb Gausmann, to provide greater assistance to medically complex clients and engage them in care as well as serve as a liaison with area HIV clinics. Deb works closely with the Positive Health Clinic, PACT, Childrens Hospital, and the Allegheny County Jail (among other organizations) to facilitate our clients active participation in care.We now have the option to offer basic services such as blood pressure monitoring, nutritional couseling, wound care, and health literacy counseling in our office as well as wherever clients may reside out in the community. Deb actively advocates for our clients care and teaches them to advocate for themselves as well as offering counseling on harm reduction practices and help with interpreting lab results. Our Nurse Case Manager meets the clients where they are and walks them through the stages of care from making the appointments, to attending appointments with them, to helping them follow through on their care directives.
