One AIDS/HIV Center Closes, Another Opens | News
People coping with HIV and AIDS in Macon will soon have a new place to find help.
That's because The Rainbow Center is closing its doors by the end of this month.
Right now, 16 people are scheduled to move in once it opens a day before the Rainbow Center closes.
The Rainbow Center is closing because executive director, Michael Leon, missed a deadline for a grant application.
"What has been done, I cannot undo. I can't do anything about it but I can do something about the future. And that's my main focus and my main priority, my biggest push right now is moving forward. I can't live in the past," he says.
He says he hopes to maintain the Rainbow Center building even after funding runs out and return to a volunteer-based program.
