Beautiful Gate Outreach Center
‘THE FULL SERVICE MINISTRY’
Renee Palmore-Beaman, RN, Founder and Executive Director of Beautiful Gate Outreach Center and her husband, Pastor Sylvester S. Beaman,established an HIV and AIDS testing program and part-time primary care facility at Bethel A.M.E Church located in downtown Wilmington, Delaware.
This model of HIV/AIDS primary care and treatment demonstrates how churches are stepping into the gaps in health care to eliminate health disparities and reduce stigma within communities of color. The progressive work of this health ministry began with the compassionate leadership of the church and a small group of volunteers.
Through a partnership with Christiana Care, a large local hospital in Wilmington, Beautiful Gate Outreach Center now tests the largest number of people for HIV/AIDS in the entire state of Delaware.
