Everybody Can Do Something...
In 1985, a non-profit organization was born from the drive, energy and compassion of volunteers in Lancaster County as they strove to meet the challenges faced by individuals, families and communities in the early days of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in South Central Pennsylvania. While much has changed since the early years of all-volunteer services offered out of a church basement in Lancaster County, Alder Health Services continues to embody the creative and compassionate spirit which led our organization's founders to offer strong, resourceful and affirming community-based solutions to challenges in our community.
Now offering medical care, mental health services, STD screening and treatment, and HIV/AIDS services as well as Alder Health's newest venture -— The Tree House at Alder Health -— dedicated to meeting the needs of homeless LGBT youth and young adults, Volunteers are essential to the Agency's efforts to meet the growing health needs in our community.
All of us can help make a difference in our community. As Daniel Tiger from Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood says, " Everybody is big enough to do something."
