Our mission is to promote the dignity and wellness of adults, families, youth and children impacted by HIV/AIDS through quality support and prevention services, so they may live healthy lives.
In 1989, CANDII (Children's AIDS Network) and Full Circle AIDS Hospice Support were two individual agencies working in Hampton Roads to better the community and help those affected and infected with HIV/AIDS. Each did their part to serve their respective clients and educate the community on the overwhelming effect of HIV/AIDS in Hampton Roads.
Full Circle AIDS Hospice Support had an excellent reputation of serving individuals who were at the end stages of their disease and needed hospice support services. They provided case management and meals to over 150 people annually. CANDII focused its efforts on women and children impacted by the disease and provided family-centered services throughout all stages of HIV. They also provided case management, day care and support groups to over 300 people affected by HIV/AIDS annually.
In 2006, a merger between Full Circle AIDS Hospice Support and CANDII formed AIDS Care Center for Education and Supportive Services. The two agencies came together with a common mission: to serve more individuals and families that are impacted by HIV/AIDS in Hampton Roads. Under our new name, ACCESS AIDS Care, we have united the two causes and brought together two solid reputations, so we may better serve our community. For more than 20 years, we have been bringing HIV/AIDS awareness and support services to the Hampton Roads community.
