General Information
Description of AgencyAction Wellness currently serves over 4,000 clients annually through the efforts of over 400 dedicated volunteers and over 100 professional staff. Services are provided at six Action Wellness locations and throughout the community.
MissionAction Wellness is a Philadelphia-based organization committed to helping people living with chronic diseases. Its services include:

medical case management
a range of health screenings including HIV testing
treatment as prevention, and prevention education
supportive housing
volunteer services

Continuing its legacy of providing support and myriad services for individuals living with HIV disease, its Board of Directors, staff and volunteers work together to sustain and enhance the quality of life for the diverse community it serves.
HistoryIn September of 1986, a group of 84 committed volunteers came together to form a community of care to provide services to people affected by AIDS in Philadelphia. In its first year of service, ActionAIDS helped over 100 people diagnosed with AIDS. Since then, thanks to dedicated volunteers, talented staff, generous donors and ongoing support from city, state and federal agencies, ActionAIDS has grown to become one of Pennsylvania’s largest AIDS service organization. ActionAIDS services have expanded over the years and the organization has decided to change its name to more accurately reflect the range of services provided.

We believe our new name, Action Wellness, more accurately captures the full scope of our services. Action Wellness will continue the legacy of providing steadfast support to people living with HIV/AIDS, and will expand to also serve LGBTQ Seniors and people living with chronic diseases. The organization’s focus will continue to be on increasing access to primary health care, while providing practical and emotional support to the clients we are privileged to serve.
