Allies receives two-year grant from The Pittsburgh Foundation for clinic

Allies for Health + Wellbeing announced that the organization has received a two-year $120,000 grant from The Pittsburgh Foundation. The grant will provide operating support for Allies’ medical clinic.

“We are so grateful to The Pittsburgh Foundation for their support of the work that we do,” said Sean DeYoung, CEO of Allies for Health + Wellbeing. “Our medical clinic is a critical piece of our organization, and this grant will help us to continue to provide quality, inclusive medical care to our patients and clients.”

Allies for Health + Wellbeing is a Pittsburgh-based nonprofit that empowers individuals and communities through high-quality integrated medical care and supportive human services. The organization was founded as the Pittsburgh AIDS Task Force in 1985 by Kerry Stoner and a small group of volunteers. Since then, Allies has expanded its focus beyond HIV prevention and care to address the diverse needs of the community in Pittsburgh. Part of this expansion was the addition of the medical clinic in 2016. Allies’ services are available to everyone, and they include primary care, holistic HIV treatment, hepatitis C and STI testing and care, gender-affirming care, and behavioral health care.

During Allies’ 2022-23 fiscal year, its clinic served 1,751 unique patients.

Established in 1945, The Pittsburgh Foundation is one of the nation’s oldest community foundations. As a community foundation, its resources comprise endowment funds established by individuals, businesses and organizations with a passion for charitable giving and fulfilling the Foundation’s mission of improving quality of life for all in the region.
