I am Stuart Lane, the executive director of MFAP, or the Mid Fairfield AIDS Project. We are a non-profit organization providing services to people living with HIV/AIDS & and other disabilities.
Since 1992, MFAP has been the leading AIDS service organization in the area, serving residents from Bridgeport to Stamford. We provide many services to the marginalized community in the greater Norwalk-Westport area. These include rapid HIV/Hepatitis C testing, housing for the homeless, medical case management, food security, drug user health + harm reduction, transportation, oral health much more. While we began as an AIDS service organization, today we serve everyone in need.
MFAP owns and operates a 10-room transitional housing program. We also help people with disabilities & limited financial income by subsidizing a portion of their rents.
Serving marginalized and stigmatized populations has been at the care of our mission since day one. We do this with the support of volunteers, donors, colleagues, civic + community leaders, elected officials, and faith-based organizations.
We are a village that operates together and collaborates with each other to accomplished over goals. My office door is open to all and our success is driven by clients equally with staff.
To act as a direct and indirect service provider and advocate for all those affected by HIV/AIDS and other co-morbidities; to create lasting solutions to prevent the spread of HIV/HCV, recurring homelessness and addiction through education, prevention programs, collaborations and housing initiatives.
