Closing of the Peer Engagement Centre at AIDS Vancouver
AIDS Vancouver has reviewed all of its programs and services and with the changes coming into affect June 1st, 2014, we have decided to close the drop-in Peer Engagement Centre. We are also going to be moving to new temporary space and we will not be able to accommodate a drop-in space there.
Therefore, we are closing the Peer Engagement Centre on Friday, June 27, 2014.
The space will continue to be used for programs and groups for AIDS Vancouver clients. We hope to see you at future workshops and programs offered in the Peer Engagement Centre. These will be advertised when they are being offered.
