CALOR Joins AIDS Healthcare Foundation

Anixter Center Announces Its CALOR Division
to Join AIDS Healthcare Foundation

Transition to Take Place Feb. 1, 2017


Chicago, Ill. (Jan. 30, 2017) — Effective February 1, Anixter Center’s CALOR Division will become part of AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF).

CALOR (Comprensión y Apoyo a Latinos en Oposición al Retrovirus) was founded in 1990 as a grassroots organization in Chicago to support Latinos living with or affected by AIDS, a much underserved community at that time. In 1993, CALOR joined Anixter Center so that it could expand the population it served and the services provided. Today, CALOR is a recognized leader in HIV/AIDS support services in the city.

“By joining AIDS Healthcare Foundation, CALOR will now be able to serve even more people, far beyond the Chicago area. It is the perfect next step for CALOR as it continues to evolve and respond to new challenges in this field. And, more important, it is a wonderful transition for CALOR clients who will now have access to nationwide and global resources,” said Dr. Teresa Garate, President & CEO of Anixter Center.

Based in Los Angeles, AHF is a global nonprofit organization providing cutting-edge medicine and advocacy to more than 659,000 people in 36 countries. It is currently the largest provider of HIV/AIDS medical care in the United States.

“CALOR has been fortunate to be part of the Anixter Center family for many years,” said Omar Lopez, Director of CALOR. “We have grown and benefitted so much from the relationship and are now perfectly positioned to join AHF and take on a new leadership role in the area of HIV/AIDS prevention services. This is an exciting opportunity for our staff and our clients.”
