Wayne Fette was an early and longstanding supporter and advocate for HIV/AIDS services, offering one of the first venues for free HIV testing in Ogunquit, Maine. He also proudly flew the first rainbow flag in Ogunquit, Maine, in recognition of LGBTQ rights. Wayne always made a point to contribute to and participate in charitable events, raising awareness and funds for critical services, including Ogunquit’s Spirit of Giving and The Southern Maine AIDS Walk. He was on various boards including GLAD (Boston) and the Youth Enrichment Center at Hilton-Winn Farm. Our community fondly remembers his smile, warmth and generosity, and we are honored to name the Prevention Program in his memory.

Confidential HIV Antibody Testing

Frannie Peabody Center offers free, confidential HIV testing at a variety of location across southern Maine. No blood is drawn. We use OraQuick© oral swab tests and results are available in just twenty minutes. Testing is available by appointment, and at special events during the year. Our prevention staff members are always happy to talk with groups or individuals in need of testing, group education, or supportive counseling.

We work closely with those testing positive for HIV or other infections, ensuring appropriate referrals are made and that compassionate, high-impact care is provided.
