AID Atlanta Executive Director Nicole Roebuck On Her 20-Year Career in HIV, Allyship To Black Gay Men - The Reckoning

Nicole Roebuck says she has always felt chosen throughout her 20-year career with AID Atlanta, the city’s leading HIV service organization, founded in 1982 in response to the national HIV epidemic. Roebuck, who has served as Executive Director of AID Atlanta since 2015, became only the second Black woman in the agency’s history to ascend to the top leadership position, a role that she says she actually never applied for, continuing a non-traditional but rewarding trajectory from the beginning of her tenure at the agency.

For more than 38 years AID Atlanta has been serving the Atlanta Metro area treating those affected by HIV/AIDS and providing HIV/STI testing to stop the spread of the disease. This year has dealt us all a series of challenges with COVID19 being the greatest of these. As we reflect on the year our agency staff has taken the challenges we have been handed and turned them into opportunities. Amidst the chaos, we have continued to deliver hope and health, regardless of one's ability to pay.

Every year including 2020 amidst COVID19 we see an increased demand for programs and services to prevent new HIV infections and for people living with HIV/AIDS. We have nearly 3,000 active patients in our health care center, using our pharmacy, and benefiting from client assistance programs like case management and housing. Our PrEP Therapy Clinic now serves nearly 450 uninsured individuals at high-risk of contracting HIV, and on average we perform over 1,200 HIV and 3,000 STD screenings each month. Our viral suppression rate continues its five year upward trend to its current level of 82%. This is all during the time of COVID19.

We continue to meet this demand because of generous gifts from friends like you. Gifts of your time and financial resources in support of improving health in our community combine to make meeting our mission possible. As the year closes, we thank you for your past support and ask for your support in making a year-end gift today to help AID Atlanta continue our important work improving the health of Atlanta.

You may wish to put your donation toward these areas of need for our clients and patients:

  • Rent and Utility Assistance  
  • Food vouchers   
  • Public transportation and Uber Health service 
  • Health insurance premiums and co-pay assistance 
  • PrEP Labs
We are grateful for you our friends, donors, corporate partners, and our committed staff.  The support we have received has directly benefitted our patients and clients during this extraordinary time.

 Thank you, from all of us at AID Atlanta. May you and yours have a safe holiday season and a healthy happy new year.
