Project HOPE, a program of Family Services of Montgomery County, will celebrate 30 years of advances in HIV/AIDS education and prevention on Wednesday, September 18.

In partnership with the AIDS Fund, Project HOPE will host a commemoration on the Swede Street entrance of the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown from 10-11am. Montgomery County Commissioner Valerie Arkoosh and Robb Reichard, Executive Director of the AIDS Fund will be speaking at the event, as well as Tim O’Connell, Executive Director of Family Services of Montgomery County and Viviann Schorle, Program Director for Project HOPE.

Governor Tom Wolf provided acclamation to Project HOPE for their advancements and recognizes September 18 as HIV/AIDS and Aging Awareness Day.

“I commend the Family Services of Montgomery County’s support of their community, and am confident that this organization will continue to serve the commonwealth with distinction for many years to come.”

Project HOPE (HIV/AIDS Outreach Prevention Education) began in 1989 as a demonstration project for case management to assist those infected with HIV/AIDS in Montgomery County. Project HOPE improves the lives of those living with HIV/AIDS and those at risk for the disease by providing medical case management, HIV testing, prevention education and outreach.
