Covid-19 is real and we encourage everyone to follow CDC guidelines and shelter-at-home until this pandemic as subsided and the CDC has instructed us it is safe to leave our homes and socialize. PLEASE follow their guidelines and wash your hands frequently, especially if you have been outside and use hand sanitizers as well. Practice social distancing by keeping at least 6' to 10' distance between you and anyone else you have not been sheltered with at home.
REAF has cancelled our Spring events but is currently making plans for summer events and beyond but with contingency plans in place as well. This will not be an easy time for REAF as we will no longere have operating funds coming in until at least August and we are doing all we can to minimize expenses as well as introduce new ways to obtains funds. We expect to announce some news ways to support REAF while sheltering-in-place and also enjoy great entertainment while doing so.
PLEASE, stay safe, stay healthy and find effective ways to stay sane. Reach out to friends and family to ensure they are ok and remember, we are all in this together. We all need each other and we need to look after each other. The entertainment industry has been hit hard by this virus and many performers we have enjoyed over the years no longer have income. Please support local theater and performers in any ways you can. They will be here for you when this is all over.

REAF’s focus has always been, and continues to be, to support AIDS services until there is a cure. With recent advancements in HIV treatments and promising research for a cure however, REAF has expanded our focus areas of what we support andalso supports programs that provide food for the needy and programs that support homeless and disenfranchised youth in addition to continued funding for HIV programs in the SF
