APW was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation in 1987 to provide education to the community about HIV/AIDS and services to individuals and families infected with HIV disease. APW has grown from a narrowly focused, case management AIDS service organization into the primary provider of non-medical HIV/AIDS support services in Central Massachusetts. The agency has expanded from a small Shrewsbury Street store-front office into three strategic locations, Worcester (Main office), Leominster and Southbridge. During this same period APW enhanced service provision by increasing the professionalism of service-delivery staff, white strengthening the organizations volunteer base. By the mid-90’s, APW’s community profile had been raised significantly and signature fundraising activities had been well established, including the annual Walk For Life.
