San Francisco, January 20 – San Francisco AIDS Foundation is moving to a new building at 1035 Market Street, a half block west of its current location. The new space enables the foundation to accommodate an expansion of client services, which include the recent addition of clients formerly served by New Leaf. The foundation will open at the new location on February 1, 2011.
“The move couldn’t come at a better time for us” said Chief Executive Officer Neil Giuliano. “As the lease on our current space neared its end, we were able to leverage the downturn in the real estate market to secure a new space that holds great promise to grow client services, and accelerate efforts to radically reduce new infections in San Francisco.”
San Francisco AIDS Foundation will occupy three floors in the newly renovated building in the mid-Market area, bringing together the majority of the agency’s services into one unified space. The open layout of the offices allows for greater collaboration across program and professional staff, which ultimately means higher-quality service and stronger advocacy for our clients.
“Our address is changing but our mission remains the same – to end the HIV epidemic in the city where it began and, eventually, everywhere,” said Giuliano. “Now we’re in a much stronger position to make that goal a reality.”
