NO/AIDS Task Force is now CrescentCare

NO/AIDS Task Force d.b.a. CrescentCare was founded in 1983 in response to the early devastating effects of the AIDS epidemic in the New Orleans area. The organization began as a single phone line with an answering machine at a home in the Faubourg Marigny.  The program expanded by offering an AIDS Information Center and Hotline in 1985.  In 2013, we expanded our mission and services,  becoming a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), and, as CrescentCare, we continue to grow rapidly to meet the needs of our diverse community in the changing health care environment.

CrescentCare serves all individuals, regardless of gender, sexual orientation or identity, race, ethnicity, religion, education, or socioeconomic status and has been recognized as a “2016 Leader in LGBT Healthcare Equality” by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, the educational arm of the country’s largest LGBT civil rights organization
