San Francisco Business Times (11.18.11) - Monday, November
The San Francisco nonprofit Under One Roof, a retail store
that helps fund local HIV/AIDS agencies, celebrated its 20th
anniversary Thursday at its 518A Castro St. location. It has
raised more than $4 million over the years, and at one point
helped support as many as 70 HIV/AIDS groups, said Beth
Feingold, its executive director; it now assists 22 groups.
"The need is still there," but it has changed, she said. "The
rate of new infections (especially among the young and certain
ethnic groups) is staggeringly high. There are terrible side
effects from the drugs" used to treat HIV/AIDS, she added.
