 "Any time you have a chance to help people and give back to your community is a great opportunity," Clark began.  "Sadly, my brother died from AIDS years ago and being a part of an organization like CAP not only provides a service for individuals in need but also allows me to watch my time, contributions and dedication positively reflect on the community."

CAP provides and promotes education, advocacy and compassion to individuals and families infected and affected by HIV and AIDS through case management, prevention and other support services.  CAP works throughout Palm Beach County to provide such support services as housing assistance, food, transportation, mental health counseling and emergency assistance.  

Since its inception in 1985, CAP has provided educational services to more than 250,000 people in a variety of settings, including prisons, county schools, on the streets in high-risk neighborhoods, in health settings, substance abuse treatment centers, methadone clinics, and others.  Celebrating 25 years of service, the local organization has grown into one of the most successful community-based HIV/AIDS service organizations in the nation.
