Posted December 12th, 2017 at 1:27 pm.


To provide quality comprehensive health and wellness services in an LGBTQ-focused environment while preserving the dignity and improving the quality of life of the individuals we serve.


Mazzoni Center is the premier health and wellness care provider in the Philadelphia region specifically targeting the health care needs of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer communities. It was founded in 1979 as an all-volunteer clinic to serve the needs of the LGBTQ community in Philadelphia. When the first cases of HIV/AIDS began to appear in the early 1980s, the organization quickly responded, becoming the oldest AIDS service organization in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the fourth oldest in the Nation. As it grew and evolved to meet the needs of our constituents, Mazzoni Center combined HIV/AIDS-related services with a broad continuum of health care and supportive services, which include: outreach, prevention, education, direct medical and care services, psychosocial, mental health, therapeutic services, legal services, and support groups. With over 13,000 patients and 35,000 individuals benefiting annually from our services, we have proven to be a leader among community-based organizations in the greater Philadelphia area, and have developed a reputation for excellence and innovation in service delivery to our constituents. Mazzoni Center currently has a staff of 150 individuals and a budget in excess of $16M.
