The mission of AIDS Services of Austin is to enhance the health and well-being of the community and people affected by HIV and AIDS. In 2012, AIDS Services of Austin (ASA) celebrates 25 years of positive change for people affected by HIV and AIDS in Central Texas. It has been 30 years since AIDS first appeared as an emerging disease and we have been responding to this evolving epidemic in Central Texas for 25 of them. As we have grown and become the largest AIDS Services Organization (ASO) in Central Texas, we have come to realize the importance of defining the core values that govern our work. ASA's core values that we live by are: adaptability, collaboration, diversity, integrity, and respect.

Annually, ASA provides direct care services to over 1,500 people and HIV prevention education to over 10,000 people in Central Texas. Our core programs include:
