About Alamance Cares
We are a nonprofit agency focused on stopping the spread of HIV, syphilis, and hepatitis C through testing, education, and awareness in Alamance, Caswell, and Rockingham counties in North Carolina.
We serve everyone! There are no eligibility requirements for our programs, and testing is always free. We welcome people of any age, income, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation or preference, gender identity, religion, disability, or nation of origin to benefit from our services.

In 1987, the United Way Community Council formed the AIDS Response Coordinating Group to increase community awareness and education relative to the rapid spread of HIV. With the increasing number of Alamance County residents testing positive for HIV, Alamance Cares was organized under Alamance Regional Medical Center in February 1992 and became an agency of the United Way in 1995, thus dissolving the AIDS Response Coordinating Group. Alamance Cares joined services with HomeCare Providers in December of 2000 to provide direct services to people living with HIV.
In January 2020, Alamance Cares formally became a department of Alamance Regional Medical Center (ARMC) and dissolved as a separate non-profit. ARMC is a 501-(C)(3), or a nonprofit organization.
