About

In 2015, PALSS commemorated 30 years of service to the community.

Palmetto AIDS Life Support Services was formed in 1985 to help South Carolinians fight the war against AIDS.  We offer FREE services to people who have been diagnosed with or at risk of contracting HIV/AIDS, and we also work with their loved ones.

If someone you know or love is living with HIV/AIDS, in some ways, you are too.  Friends, family members and loved ones can learn how best to help those who are living with HIV/AIDS. At PALSS, we can help you to learn how to provide care and how to offer emotional support. We can also help you with your own emotions, because knowing someone who has been diagnosed with HIV/AIDS will change your life too.

Coronavirus Notice

In an abundance of caution and concern for our clients, volunteers, and staff, we have made the difficult decision to reduce operating hours for PALSS’ and Adams Place Clinic for the next several days.

If you need emergency assistance, contact our on call staff person at 803-760-2901 or leave a message at 803-779-7257. Messages will be checked several times daily.

We will be open for emergency services on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10AM until 1PM. Other hours may be arranged by appointment only.
