Our Mission

Triad Health Project provides emotional and practical support to individuals living with HIV/AIDS, to their loved ones, and to those at risk for HIV/AIDS; implements strategies to educate those at risk and the community about HIV/AIDS; and advocates locally, regionally, and nationally for individuals and groups infected with or affected by HIV/AIDS.

Our Vision
We will stand together for as long as it takes until HIV/AIDS is no more, working together to promote enlightenment, dignity, acceptance, understanding, and love, demonstrating that we are not only enduring this epidemic, but prevailing over it.




Did you know that 37% of THP's funding comes from individuals just like you?  Now more than ever, your gifts play a tremendous part in helping THP fulfill its mission.  When you contribute to THP in any amount, you stand with us in the fight, and you stand up for everyone we serve.  


Thank You!

"Words can sometimes, in moments of grace, attain the quality of deeds."

~ Elie Wiesel




It is an overused word in our culture but on rare occasions it is the only word that fits and last month I was blessed to experience two such occasions.


The first was when I read the obituary for Lee Huggins, a former THP board member and long time supporter and advocate for the agency. I was stood still by this line midway through the text: "Having been diagnosed and living with HIV/AIDS for 27 years he volunteered countless hours for Triad Health Project and Higher Ground."


Lee had always been quite open about his HIV status and was a powerful and vocal advocate for people living with HIV/AIDS and I know for certain that those words were his own.


And I'm quite certain that I have never read an obituary that was as candid about an HIV status and I'm sure it gave some folks pause as they drank their morning coffee.




A few weeks later I was on vacation in Hilton Head, SC and found myself sitting next to a lovely couple at a restaurant bar. We got to talking as people do at bars and Ann, the wife, asked me about my work and I told her about THP.


She smiled gently and gave me a look of recognition as she said, "My father has AIDS."


Ann shared her father's status with me just as she would if he had cancer or diabetes or MS and it deeply moved me. She told me that her father was 74 and had been diagnosed over a decade ago. He's doing well and his viral load is undetectable.


These are the types of conversations we need to be having about this epidemic to continue to drag it out of the shadows of stigma. The more people talk about HIV/AIDS, the more fear and misinformation are reduced.




I suppose hope is another overused word but that one fits, too, and I'm very grateful to Lee and Ann for giving me hope through their courage.


As always, we thank you for standing with us.


Best always -

Dining for Friends

Sheltering Hope

is the theme for the 24th Annual
Dining for Friends!


Each year hundreds of hosts from around the Triad will welcome their friends for a party / event in exchange for a donation to Triad Health Project.  


On May 18th, all party hosts and guests are invited to The Terrace at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex for the ever-popular Dessert Finale, with fabulous desserts from local restaurants and caterers, and music by Greensboro's own Sleeping Booty Band!

It will be an amazing night of celebration honoring the effort to raise funds and awareness for HIV/AIDS in our community.  


Thank you to our Presenting Sponsor: 

Higher Ground
This may not sound like much at first but the news of the day around here is that our white house is... actually white. That is, as opposed to soot-colored (and soot-covered), a situation with which we had simply grown accustomed. What follows is the very brief history of a miracle:


A beautiful and anonymous donor gave a financial gift to Higher Ground which prompted us to wonder at the cost of getting the layers of soot pressure-washed off our beloved home. Enter John Aull of Aull Paint Company who, rather than giving us an estimate, gave us an immaculate pressure-washing instead. And then he decided the house needed patching and painting, too, so he gave us that... and in less than one (cold and rainy) week, every paintable inch of our house and porch and fence was cleaned, mended and painted by a courteous and capable crew.


You imagine a coat of paint would never be something worth crying over but then one day you find yourself weeping for joy because somebody finally took such care over a house that has herself cared for so many for so long.


Thank you and bless you, John Aull.

Calling all Past and Future Dining for Friends Hosts!

Each year, the parties are getting more creative, more fun, and raising more vital funds for Triad Health Project's Dining for Friends. What will your party theme be?

Emory, Amber and Regina at last year's DFF Grand Dessert Finale!

Last year, Regina and Amber Alexander held a Kids' Playdate at their church for their Dining for Friends party. They wanted to include their daughter in their party and thought it would be a great way to teach children about differences, tolerance, and compassion. They were joined by over 15 kids and their parents.

This year, they are opening the party up to other churches and family groups and have even hired the kid-friendly Big Bang Boom band for their entertainment! 

If you would like more info about this event, please email Shana.

Cooking with Ninevah



Farmer's Market Frittata

(Serves 4)


Saturday is my day to visit our local farmer's market for eggs and fresh produce. Tender spinach is beginning to appear among the items offered and by combining it with some of the cold weather leafy greens such as chard or kale, adding free-range eggs, a few strips of bacon and some Parmesan cheese, I made a delicious frittata. Paired with toasted home-made bread and fruit, it makes a delicious "breakfast-for-supper" meal.



  • 2 oz. fresh baby spinach, stemmed and washed, then dried to remove as much water as possible
  • 2 oz. fresh kale or Swiss chard, washed, removed from stalk and coarsely chopped
  • 3 Tablespoons chopped red onion
  • 4 slices of bacon (I use reduced sodium turkey bacon)
  • 6 eggs
  • 3 Tablespoons of skim milk
  • ½ cup of shredded parmesan cheese, plus ¼ cup shredded parmesan cheese for topping the frittata
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil and 1 Tablespoon reduced-fat butter (Land-o-Lakes) for sautéing the vegetables   
Preheat the oven to 475 degrees.


Cook the bacon strips in an oven-proof, non-stick skillet. Drain the cooked bacon on paper towels. Set aside to cool.

In a medium bowl, mix the eggs with the skim milk, ½ cup of shredded parmesan cheese, and the salt and pepper. Set aside.


Stem and wash the spinach and wrap in a towel to absorb as much water as possible. Wash and dry the kale and tear the leaves away from the stalk, then coarsely chop the kale and set aside. Wash the red onion, removing the outer membrane, then finely chop.

Sauté the vegetables in the skillet, starting with the onion and stirring it until the onion is lightly browned, about 2 minutes, then add the kale, then the spinach.  Stir the vegetable mixture until the kale and spinach begin to soften.  The entire sauté process takes only 4 - 5 minutes. 


Add the egg mixture to the sautéed vegetables in the non-stick skillet, gently stirring the vegetable mixture to distribute around the pan. Cook the egg/vegetable mixture over medium-low heat for approximately 5 minutes, gently running a spatula around the edge of the egg/vegetable mixture as it cooks to prevent sticking. The mixture should begin to bubble in the center, but still be slightly runny.


Sprinkle the remaining ¼ cup of Parmesan cheese over the egg mixture and then place the skillet with the egg/vegetable mixture in the preheated oven and bake for 4 - 5 minutes, or until the frittata is firm. Remove from oven and cut the frittata into 4 pieces and serve with bread and/or fruit.

Bon Appétit!
