REAF’s founders, the late Barbara Richmond and Peggy Ermet, envisioned a world without AIDS when they created this agency. 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 
​Bay Area.

Beneficiaries for our 2018 events to date include Meals On Wheels of San Francisco, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, Positive Resource Center and AIDS Legal Referral Panel.
