About Frannie Peabody Center

about fpc


Frannie Peabody Center is Maine's largest HIV/AIDS services organization with the mission of preventing the spread of HIV and providing support to those living with HIV/AIDS in Maine.  The organization was formed in 2002 following the merger of Peabody House and Portland's The AIDS Project; two organizations with long, progressive histories in the fight against HIV/AIDS in Maine.  Frannie Peabody was instrumental in founding both organizations and changing the landscape of Maine's response to HIV/AIDS after it erupted in the early 1980's.  For a complete history, click here.

Annually, FPC provides direct services to over 400 people in Maine through medical case management, housing assistance, emergency services, as well as mental health and substance abuse counseling. The agency also offers free, anonymous HIV and Hepatitis C testing throughout southern Maine, performing over 500 HIV tests annually.
