“The Alexander Foundation makes a huge difference in the lives of It Takes a Village LGBT program participants who are in need. They have received assistance for many basic needs, including but not limited to dental work, a bed after having slept on the floor for months, rental assistance after being laid off, and other necessary things. It Takes a Village serves primarily people of color and our partnering with The Alexander Foundation to improve the quality of their lives is invaluable. Thank you!”

“The Alexander Foundation is making a tremendous difference in the lives of our LGBT patients and their families. Our HIV Primary Care Clinic program at Denver Health serves some of the most vulnerable members of our community who are struggling to meet their basic needs and pay their medical costs. When our patients feel there is nowhere else to turn, it means so much that they can receive emergency assistance with their expenses from The Alexander Foundation. We want to extend our gratitude to The Alexander Foundation for strengthening our community, by providing dignity and hope to our LGBT families.”

“BCAP has benefitted immensely over many years as partners with The Alexander Foundation. Many of our LGBT HIV positive clients in need have been assisted with support that is simply unavailable through any other funding source.
By joining together, the Foundation and BCAP have helped ensure the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered people are held up and sustained by a caring community. We thank the Foundation for being a part of the essential safety net for persons living with HIV in Colorado.”

“I am writing to express our sincere appreciation with the assistance that The Alexander Foundation has given Western Colorado AIDS Project (WestCAP) throughout the last several years. The financial assistance that has been, and continues to be provided to the clients of WestCAP is extremely beneficial. There are many individuals who would have had significant hardship without this assistance.
WestCAP serves the western 22 counties of Colorado. Most WestCAP clients live on a very limited income and the cost of HIV care is high. Although WestCAP can provide some financial assistance surrounding HIV care, our funding is limited and often restricted as to what we can assist with. The rural areas of western Colorado often have very limited community resources.
The Alexander Foundation has been able to fill some of these gaps in the financial needs that our clients have. Many HIV positive individuals living in western Colorado must travel 3-4 hours for HIV care and for some of Western Colorado, there is no public transportation options available to them. I recall several instances, where HIV positive clients were in need of tires for their car and The Alexander Foundation stepped in and helped.
The Emergency Grant and The Holiday Grant has been used to help clients with medical bills, housing, auto repairs, home repairs, home modifications, personal quality of life needs, support with dependents – the list goes on. There are times, when there is no ability to anticipate a need until it arises. There is often no ability to plan or option to plan for an emergency. It is so helpful to our LGBT community to have The Alexander Foundation here to help.”
