WELCOME TO ARCH
At HIV/AIDS Resources and Community Health (ARCH), we dream of a time and place where everyone is free to live healthy, stigma-free, vital lives.
To achieve this vision, we provide programs, services, education and support to people living with, affected by, and at risk of, HIV and AIDS in Guelph, Wellington County, Dufferin, Grey and Bruce Counties.
ACKNOWLEDGMENT AND ACTION
ARCH in solidarity with Indigenous Communities
We want to express our deepest condolences to the families and communities of 215 children found in the Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc territory who never made it home from the Kamloops Residential School. The legacy of colonialism in Canada, the damage and harm it continues to cause, is not a dark part of Canada’s history but a reality that continues to ripple throughout communities. We acknowledge that Indigenous communities have shared this knowledge before and have led the call to action for years.
SAFE PLACE PROGRAM
ARCH Response to Safe Place Program
ARCH supports the community letter opposing the Guelph Police Service’s (GPS) recently launched Safe Place program. We do not believe that these new stickers are a meaningful step toward making the City of Guelph a safer space for 2SLGBTQI+ communities.
At ARCH, we are closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and planning for different scenarios in accordance to recommendations from our local, provincial, and national public health organizations. At this time, we are operating by appointment only.
The safety of our patients, participants, and staff is our main priority. We will be sharing any and all information that is important for you to know through our communication channels. Please visit the following website to stay up to date with information regarding COVID-19: www.archguelph.ca/COVID19
PROGRAMS & SERVICES FOR PEOPLE LIVING WITH HIV
We offer a wide array of services and educational opportunities aimed at reducing stigma and social isolation through knowledge enhancement of the various social determinants of health that impact some of our community’s most vulnerable members.
