Philip Yaeger has a unique perspective on the work of AIDS Services Foundation Orange County (ASF). He initially started as a volunteer with the agency in May 1993 and developed an immediate appreciation for the organization’s stewardship of its resources and the role that volunteers have historically played at ASF.
In July of that same year, Yaeger was hired as ASF’s first Food Pantry Coordinator through a grant from the Elizabeth Taylor Foundation. Since then he has served in a number of direct and support service roles before being appointed the Executive Director/CEO in April 2008.
Founded in 1985, AIDS Services Foundation is the largest non-profit provider of care and services to people with HIV in Orange County, serving about 1,600 people each year. Services include food, transportation, housing, emergency financial assistance, family support programs, mental health counseling, support groups, and HIV education and prevention services. ASF assumed responsibility for organizing AIDS Walk Orange County in 1996. For more information, please visit: http://www.ocasf.org.
