                                   a letter from our director
                                   Dear friend,
patti capouch, lcSW
Executive Director                    It’s been quite a year at Frannie Peabody Center!
2006 Board of Directors               In 2006, we served more people in Maine at risk for, or living with, HIV/AIDS than
robert Hark, esq.                  ever before. And we’ve continued to strive for wise strategic planning, programs that re-
President                          ally work, strong partnerships in the community, and effective public advocacy.
Wendy r. cherubini                    Why? Because even today, after 25 years, we’re still fighting the stigma of HIV/AIDS. The
Vice-President                     disease is more widespread but also, in some ways, more invisible. And there’s still no cure.
Steven G. McGrath                     Yet the people we serve are right here! They’re our neighbors, our friends, our family.
Secretary                          And they deserve human kindness, dignity, quality care, and a safe home just as surely as
Jon Bradley, DSW                   you and I do.
Arthur A. Aleshire                    Now, however, in the face of even bigger challenges, funding sources are growing
John Hatcher                       scarcer just as costs are increasing. We had to close our supplemental-food pantry in
Peter Haffenreffer                 August for lack of funding, for example, and the cost of heating our Peabody House
