(KFVS) - The Kentucky Nonprofit Network presented Heartland CARES with the 2011 Fifth Third Bank Innovative Nonprofit Award.
Heartland CARES is an HIV/AIDS medical clinic and social service agency that serves Western Kentucky and Southern Illinois. They were recognized for their team approach to providing health care to people with HIV/AIDS and extending their reach throughout their service area.
“There is no race, ethnicity, gender, age or sexual orientation that is not impacted by this disease,” said Sue Moore Fenske, Executive Director of Heartland CARES, when accepting the Fifth Third Bank Innovative Nonprofit Award. “Our patients come from all walks of life; rich and poor, city and rural, young and old. Our goal at Heartland CARES is to educate youth and adults in Western Kentucky and Southern Illinois to eliminate the stigma and to prevent new infections.”
