RAIN-New No WhiteRAIN is a human services agency providing a comprehensive range of programs to HIV+ youth, adults and senior adults, and their families and to those that are at risk of becoming infected. Rooted in work that began in the faith community in 1992, RAIN's capabilities include a strong, committed Board and professional staff, plus a cadre of supportive volunteers and organizational partners. RAIN has served close to 2,000 clients, trained over 6,000 volunteers and provided hundreds of educational presentations to the community.

RAIN's mission is to ensure access to quality, personalized care in a nurturing environment for individuals and their families who are living with HIV and associated chronic conditions so they may live healthier fulfilled lives. Through education and advocacy, RAIN promotes disease prevention, understanding and dignity for those affected by HIV and for those who are at risk. Being one of the largest HIV nonprofits in the Carolinas providing direct client services, RAIN is widely recognized for its unique model and expertise in working with persons living with HIV and AIDS.
