ORLANDO, Fla. – Hope and Help was formed in 1989 and has been leading the charge helping people living with HIV/AIDS ever since. The cost of providing counseling and medicine to affected people in need is high, and Aids Walk Orlando is one way the community chips in to help.

Hope and Help was started because victims of the disease had no place to turn for answers for the many questions they had. They needed help in getting those answers.

The agency provides interested and affected individuals with program assistance in areas such as case management, peer support services, emergency food pantry and more.

As long as there is a need in the community, Hope and Help pledges to advocate for anyone who requires its assistance.

Aids Walk 2016 will take place on April 16, 2016 at Lake Eola Park and will be hosted by talent from News 6 that includes, Troy Bridges, Julie Broughton and others. Registration will begin at 7:30 a.m. with the walk starting one hour later.

Hope and Help as offices in Winter Park, Sanford, Kissimmee and two locations in Orlando.
