Kansas City, Mo.,
AIDS group will close after 18 years

Due to sharply dwindling financial support in recent years, the AIDS Council of Greater Kansas City, Mo., this week announced that it will close after being in operation for more than 18 years, TheKansas City Star reports. "We served as a clearinghouse, J. Dollie Rainey, program manager, told the Star. "We were the only service agency with AIDS in its name, so we were the first one people called." At its busiest, the council received about 2,000 phone calls per month seeking information about local AIDS resources. Rainey, the only remaining council staff member, says she may keep the council's telephone line active and provide information as a volunteer.
