Conference Overview

This conference brings together the continuum of housing/service providers (private and nonprofit), vendors (contractors, architects) and professional organizations that service the HIV/Aids community throughout the RI/SEMASS area.  The last comparable conference was held in 2002 in Boston – this is the first subsequent conference and the first specifically directed to Rhode Island and Southeast Massachusetts.  

The agenda also addresses the spectrum of issues that individuals and families face – decent/affordable housing, medical advances and life skill supports as well as the special needs of the elderly and ex-prisoner population.  The speakers represent the best of the region’s developers, service providers and medical practioners; several are nationally know for their outstanding work.

Sponsorships and Endorsement Opportunities are now available!

For the first time in ten years, AIDS Care Ocean State will bring together more than 150 federal, state, and local government agencies as well as non-profit leaders, organizations and vendors to have a frank and open discussion of the housing problems facing new and aging HIV/AIDS sufferers.


Raising awareness is not only an opportunity to build support for those affected by HIV/AIDS but will also let our conference participants connect with the services and vendors who can provide the solutions to the challenges they face every day when working with the HIV/AIDS community.


Please consider participating in this very important conference as a vendor, sponsor or endorser. Our invitees represent hundreds of programs, services, clients and their families who need to know more about how your company, program or service can help!
