BENEFITING: Harlem United Community AIDS Center, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Dec 13, 2013
Harlem United was first created by Jules Johnson, Ralph Horton and a group of pastors, social workers, therapists, theologians, health providers, gay men and lesbian women with the concern of the spread of HIV/AIDS. It was first called Upper Room AIDS Ministry in reference to a room in its first home in a Harlem church. After a few years, it grew as more and more people began to show up for the meetings. Later it became known as the Harlem United Community AIDS Center.
