Biographical / Historical
Though the AIDS working group organized a series of retreats for persons with HIV/AIDS and their caregivers, taught classes on AIDS prevention and care, and organized a Quaker Presence at the Philadelphia AIDS walk, the majority of its budget and services were devoted to the "Quaker Ministry to Persons With AIDS". On September 11,1999 at a Board retreat, the Board of Trustees of the Quaker Ministry to Persons With AIDS, and its director, Schodt, made an announcement to lay down its program of direct services to AIDS clients. This responsibility was taken over by the AIDS working group, though no longer under the name of "A Quaker Ministry to Persons With AIDS". On June 30, 2000, the AIDS working group was also laid down, as the only service it had come to provide was the visitation of those infected with the disease. Many of the volunteers continued their visits, however, either independently or under the auspices of Shilaom, a sister spiritual ministry to people with AIDS.
