BLC 25th Anniversary


New Look

In honor of the Boston Living Center’s 25th Anniversary we have given our logo a makeover! The BLC’s new logo not only reflects its 2012 merger with Victory Programs, but also reflects the Center’s progress over the past two-and-a-half decades.  We’ve left the colors so closely connected to the Boston Living Center the same, but updated the fonts and made the BLC’s mascot (affectionately known as Rufus) from blue to green – a color that represents health.

We hope you like the new look and feel of the Boston Living Center’s logo as much as we do!

Thursday, October 16, 2014
5:30-7:30 pm
The Boston Living Center
29 Stanhope Street, Boston

Please join us for a light dinner and champagne as we celebrate the incredible progress we’ve made in the fight against HIV/AIDS. For 25 years, the Boston Living Center has been giving new meaning to the phrase “living with HIV/AIDS.” Peer support, access to services, and regular nutritious meals endure as the core principles of the BLC.

On October 16, we hope you will join us as we officially establish a Here Until the End Fund, which will ensure everyone living with HIV/AIDS who walks through our doors will continue to receive the highest quality of care possible.

To RSVP, please click here or contact Anu Parikh by email or 617-541-0222 x624.


25 Years of Shining Stars

2014 marks the 25th anniversary of Victory Programs’ Boston Living Center.  To commemorate this milestone, we will honor the following individuals who have made a significant impact on the BLC throughout its history. All of these special Shining Stars have, in one way or another, improved the lives of our members living with HIV/AIDS. They have inspired us with their caring, they have dared to dream and they have never lost sight of what is at the heart of the BLC—compassion, support and love. 

If you would like to make a donation to the Boston Living Center in honor of one of our Shining Stars, click here, select the Boston Living Center and be sure to include the name of the Star you are honoring in the “Comments” box.  Thank you for your support!
