FACT Lehigh Valley
Type: HIV
Fighting AIDS Continuously Together

FACT'S MISSION
To help alleviate unnecessary suffering
To halt the spread of HIV/AIDS
To assure the quality of life
To raise & distribute funds
To EDUCATE

FACT is a non-profit 501c(3) organization committed to raising money to assist individuals and families affected by HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, and to conquer the HIV/AIDS crisis within the Lehigh Valley and surrounding communities.

Since 1986 FACT has been identifying, supporting, and monitoring programs that provide direct and educational services within the serviced communities. An all-volunteer organization, FACT has since raised over $2,000,000 for the emergency needs of Greater Lehigh Valley residents affected by HIV/AIDS.

In 1986, a group of concerned citizens from all walks of life gathered together in the Lehigh Valley. They were witnessing a terrifying, devastating disease recently named "AIDS" take from them what they valued the very most. Their lovers and partners. Their life-long friends. Their sons, brothers, daughters and sisters.

Over 13,000 people had died in the U.S. by this time and no one knew when... or if... it would end. The Federal Government's response up to this time had been slow, under funded, and tinged with more than a small amount of institutionalized disdain for the gay community, which had been the hardest hit by the disease at that point. Homophobia, conflicting theories, and resistance to educational outreaches hampered efforts by medical personnel, health activists, and minority leaders to stem the tide. But a growing number of people in the Lehigh Valley felt the pain, fear, and desperation of those around them. Looking forward at where this epidemic would be headed they realized one thing: it would take an entire community working together to help those needing it the most. It was not just a gay issue, it was not just a big city issue, it was everyone's issue.

It was from this group that FACT was born. Throughout its twenty-year history FACT has been staffed entirely by unpaid volunteers. The resulting savings in administrative cost are therefore passed directly into our community to fund the programs and services that are so needed by the HIV+ and Persons With Aids in our towns and cities in the Greater Lehigh Valley region.

Several years ago, a similarly concerned group of people started our first chapter in Bucks County. FACT Bucks County serves the residents of it's county, as well as Hunterdon County, New Jersey. They also underwrite the Robert Burton Education Fund.

Additionally, The Lehigh Valley AIDSWALK has merged with FACT to take advantage of FACT's administration and logistics resources and the synchronicity of the two organization's missions and histories.

Type: Art & Culture

First Unitarian Church of Philadelphia
Type: Religious
We are Unitarian Universalists. Ours is an intentionally diverse religious community. We seek to be guided by the wisdom and experience of people of all genders, races, theologies, colors, classes, ages and sexual orientations. We are a wonderful mix of straight, gay, lesbian, trans, bi, young, old (and in between), and people of all colors. We have a great children's religious education program, so if you have kids, they'll be welcome too. Unitarian Universalism is a progressive, liberal faith. Our religious movement today is characterized by a commitment to diversity in community, respect for the individual's path to religious truth, and by a dedication to social justice as a means of living out our religious values. Our Seven Principles are to covenant and promote: 1. The inherent worth and dignity of every person. 2. Justice, equity and compassion in human relations. 3. Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations. 4. A free and responsible search for truth and meaning. 5. The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large. 6. The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all. 7. Respect for the interdependent web of all existence, of which we are a part. The Unitarian-Universalist approach to spirituality is fundamentally different from religion based on the idea of "creed" or a static concept of "revelation." We do not say that life's ultimate truth has been revealed in a particular scripture. We say that together we must seek to understand the meaning of our lives. We gather in a sense of wonder before the mystery of life. In our search we have the voices and visions of every period and place in the record of human experience from which to draw. We have the accumulated wisdom of humankind- reason, intuition, the arts and sciences, and our own life experience. We take the best of the teachings of all the great religions, as well as many other sources of inspirational writings, such as Walt Whitman, Gandhi, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., or the Sufi Mystics, to name just a few sources. Please join us on Sundays at 11 a.m. in our Frank Furness-designed sanctuary at 2125 Chestnut Street. We believe you'll be glad you came to worship with us; we know we'll be glad you did.
