Latest Update on Wingspan/SAAF

Posted By on Wed, Jul 9, 2014 at 11:30 AM

The following press release was prepared on July 8th by the Boards of Directors of Wingspan and The Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation (SAAF):

" A message from the Board of Directors of Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation and Wingspan

The Board of Directors for SAAF and Wingspan met again on Monday, July 7 2014 to further discuss the opportunities of a merger between both of organizations. We are carefully evaluating the details surrounding programs, staffing, physical location needs and financial position of both organizations. The discussions are agreeable and cooperative with the intent to focus on solutions that best serve the community, clients and staff.

Both Boards are committed to ensuring programs will continue during the process to minimize the impact on clients, staff and the LGBTQ community

To facilitate this continuity of programming, Wingspan employees will be provided a temporary work space at SAAF's offices.

Over the next several weeks, both Boards will meet together and individually. It is expected more decisions will be made during this time. We will continue to provide updates on our progress.

Sincerely,

Miguel A. Cruz
SAAF Board of Directors
President

Paul Guerrero
Wingspan Board of Directors
