About New Mexico AIDS Services

New Mexico AIDS Services (NMAS) is a 501(c)3 non-profit community based organization whose mission is to enhance the quality of life for people and communities affected by HIV/AIDS through innovative and comprehensive services, support, and prevention education.

NMAS operates under the guidance and leadership of a Board of Directors, 29 employees, and over 150 volunteers who fulfill the mission of the agency.

NMAS was started by a group of concerned citizens in response to the growing problem of HIV/AIDS throughout the state. The desperate need for HIV prevention and direct care services quickly became evident, and the group incorporated as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

In 1997 new trends in HIV treatment shifted client needs away from acute care services towards practical/psycho/social services. These services include case management, home care services, housing, nutritional assistance and vocational rehabilitation.  New approaches to prevention and education are necessary in order to meet the ever changing needs of the client and the community. After years on the front lines in the battle against AIDS, NMAS has grown to meet the needs of people impacted by HIV/AIDS in our communities.

NMAS Four Corners Office serves the needs of people in San Juan, McKinley, and portions of Sandoval and Cibola counties, an area in excess of 10,000 square miles.  We offer medical case management, helping connect people with both medical and mental health care.  The case managers also conduct the Meals and Meds Support Group in Farmington and the Gathering of the Clans Support Group in Gallup.  The Four Corners office provide prevention services and programs, including Next Step andDo It Right.  We work with family members who are trying to adjust to the knowledge a loved one is living with HIV.

Because of the distance many people must travel for services in our rural part of New Mexico, we conduct numerous home visits and coordinate care with both the Indian Health Services and non- IHS physicians and pharmacies from throughout the area.
