Name of creator
Churchmembers Assembled to Respond to Aids (CARA) was a multi-denominational organization first assembled on 17 February 1998 with the aim of providing pastoral care to persons with HIV/Aids, education to the community, and consciousness raising with AIDS groups and church people. Among their projects was Morton House, a residence/hospice for persons living with AIDS, and AIDS-LINK, which connected people with AIDS to resources and support. They also started the Clergy Walk for Aids and hosted "Awake the World: A multi-faith, multi-media meditation on AIDS" at St. Matthew's United Church, Halifax. The group officially disassembled in September 2003.
Materials were donated to the Dalhousie University Archives by Larry Baxter through the Nova Scotia LGBT Seniors Archive.
