Notes:
In August, 1986, a group of concerned citizens formed Helping People with AIDS to raise money for Rochester, New York area AIDS patients. Their goal at the time was to raise funds for immediate aid for uninsured persons with AIDS. Funds were raised through private parties, benefit concerts, an event called "Dining for Dollars", and other activities. By 1991, HPA had started a "Wish List" fund to assist persons with AIDS with needs other than medical ones. Prior to 1992, donations were given to the AIDS Clinic at Strong Memorial Hospital. With the rapid increase in AIDS cases, HPA started spreading their funds around to other AIDS organizations in the area. By 2003, AIDS treatments and drugs had increased the survival rate for persons with AIDS and HIV. In November of that year, the HPA Board voted to dissolve the corporation and donate the remaining funds to AIDS Rochester.
