A Story of HOPE

A journey for James
Many of the people we serve have multiple life challenges, from poverty and stigma, to health concerns, mental health issues, addiction, and isolation. We know that LIVING with HIV is possible, and we work hard to help all of our friends visualize the hope of a good and abundant life.

Hope has several facets that apply to those we serve.

Hope in LIVING – An HIV diagnosis in not a death sentence. In fact, people diagnosed with HIV today will likely have a life span that is similar to their non-HIV neighbors. Today they are living with HIV, not dying of AIDS.

Hope in RELATIONSHIPS – People need people, and this is especially true for those living with this virus. Our group meetings and social events, along with case management activities, are intended to build relationships.

Hope in the FUTURE – God, in His wonderful provision for all of us, wishes for us to live in abundance. This is less about money and possessions and more about getting love out of life. Abundance is lots of it… lots of love.

In John 10:10, Jesus said, “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”

Thanks be to God!
