Pakachoag Church AIDS Support Group


Pakachoag Church AIDS Support Group


Around 1986, Pakachoag Church launched an AIDS Support Group that met Wednesdays from seven to nine p.m. to provide guidance and support to victims and their caregivers. The group’s mission statement read: “AIDS is not only endemic it is a famine; starvation of the spirit. People must ask the pertinent questions of life and death, love and matters of the soul if they are to obtain any peace at all.” Volunteers staffed an AIDS information center at the church, coordinated a speaker series, and reached out to welcome new group members.
