ABOUT US

Formed in the summer of 2000 as an outgrowth of the Bethel AME Church’s AIDS Task Force Ministry (Wilmington, Delaware), the Beautiful Gate Outreach Center began its commitment of improving the quality of life of those infected with and affected by HIV/AIDS. The Center is located within the office building of Bethel AME Church.

Beautiful Gate is known nationally for its ability to create effective programs that meet the needs of the local community which has a disproportionately higher rate of HIV infection. Beautiful Gate continues to find much joy in being able to utilize faith as the fuel to deliver quality and compassionate services.​

Our Mission is to eliminate the spread of HIV/AIDS and assist in the continuum of care for all people infected with and affected by HIV/AIDS in Delaware. This will be done by providing information, prevention strategies and outreach assistance that educates, empowers and contributes to the eradication of this catastrophic disease of HIV/AIDS.

Our Vision is to create a community where every person infected with and affected by HIV/AIDS is respected and supported.

HAPPY CLIENTS

My counselor made me feel welcomed.
She didn't judge me or make me feel bad.

I have been living with HIV for nearly 10 years and never felt so loved and cared for. BGOC staff is the best.

I learned so much about HIV and AIDS.
I never knew about the 3 month window period until today!
