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!

"We make a living by what we get; 

we make a life by what we give."   

~ Sir Winston Churchill

 

I've always loved that quote by Churchill and I've been blessed to work beside many "givers" in my nine years as executive director of THP, many of them in the form of board members.

 

Every non-profit is different in terms of the culture of its board. I'm fond of saying that our board is a "blue collar" board. And I mean that in all the best ways. No one agrees to serve on the THP board to pad their resume. In short, there is much heavy lifting involved.

 

You see, THP has never strayed too far away from its grass roots and our first board members who literally did whatever it took to take care of our clients in those early days - driving folks to medical appointments, preparing and delivering food, even actually providing a place to stay for clients who had nowhere else to go.

 

Certainly a lot has changed in our 27 year history, and many wonderful people have served on our board but we've always been blessed with a core group of committed and passionate individuals who have rolled up their sleeves and opened their pocket books and hearts to serve THP.

 

Our fiscal year ended on June 30 and we bid farewell to a handful of such folks as their terms came to and end and we'll welcome some new faces later this month at our new board orientation.

 

THP, like most non-profit organizations, is called on to do more with less every year and we depend on the generosity and sweat equity of devoted board members to ensure that we uphold the promise of our mission.

 

To all of you who have given of your gifts to THP in this way over the years, we are profoundly grateful.

 

 

Happy New Year!

   

Addison Ore

Executive Director

Prevention News

Our first National HIV Testing Day was a success, and we offer thanks everyone who helped make it possible. The Guilford County Health Department was on site offering a full screen for HIV and STDs, and for the first time at THP, we offered rapid HIV testing! Ten people tested with us that day, and it's our hope to hold another rapid testing event at THP in the near future. 

 

We also partnered with our good friends at Walgreens to offer HIV testing Thursday June 27 through Saturday June 29. As one of our cherished community partners, we offer a special thank-you to the staff of Walgreens on Cornwallis Drive, listed as a Walgreens National HIV/AIDS Center of Excellence, for their compassionate service to our community. 

 

Our goal for next year is to ramp-up media coverage for National HIV Testing Day via Facebook, local news and radio coverage, and flyers to increase testing, reduce the stigma that surrounds HIV/STD testing, and reduce stigma toward those living with HIV.

Cooking with Ninevah

 Several years ago, while visiting friends in Denver, Colorado, I ordered a rice salad at Cherry Creek Grill which was a blend of herbed rice with corn, onion, dried fruit and almonds.  While savoring every bite of this most excellent salad, I focused on each ingredient with the plan to recreate this tasty treat when I returned to my own kitchen...and within 24 hours of returning home, I created my version of the recipe.  While it is not quite the same as the original...it is still delicious! 
 

Denver Rice Salad

(Serves 6)

  • 1 cup organic wild rice
  • 1 cups low sodium vegetable or chicken broth
  • tsp fine sea salt
  • tsp coarsely ground black pepper
  • tsp dried thyme leaves
  • tsp dried, crushed sage leaves
  • 3 Tbsp white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp + 1 tsp olive oil
  • kernels from 1 ear of fresh corn
  • 2 Tbsp diced red onion
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
  • cup organic dried cherries (chopped to make 2 Tbsp)
  • cup thinly sliced almonds, broken into small pieces 

In a medium saucepan, bring broth, salt, pepper, thyme leaves and sage leaves to a boil. Add rice, stirring into broth mixture. When broth/rice mixture returns to a boil, cover the pan and reduce heat to simmer for approximately 20 minutes until the rice is tender and the broth is almost absorbed. Stir the corn kernels into the hot rice mixture in the pan, and then add the onion, cilantro, chopped dried cherries and almonds. Mix the white balsamic vinegar and the olive oil together in a small bowl, then toss the vinegar/oil with the rice mixture until blended.  Can be served warm, at room temperature or chilled.

Kanuga Recap
This was my first year attending the 22nd Annual HIV/AIDS Retreat at Kanuga Conference Center in Hendersonville, NC, from June 7-9th and I  was nervous about what to expect at "AIDS Camp." 
 
What I saw was around 200 people from all over the southeast, either infected or affected by HIV and AIDS, come together in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina for conversation, rest, prayer, arts, recreation, solitude and love. 
 
All defenses were down as we all were invited to be our true selves without judgment. I witnessed a lot of laughter, hugs, and genuine smiles. What an awe inspiring-experience and I look forward to an opportunity to go again next year.

Where Are They Now?
Do you ever miss getting old fashioned, hand written notes? Hopefully you still get them time to time!

We were also so tickled to have received a sweet note from Bridget Fenerty, our Development Intern from Elon University, letting us know that she accepted an AmeriCorps position in Juneau, Alaska, working with at-risk high school students.  She also thanked Ken Keeton and THP for her wonderful intern experience. 

If you are a past member of our THP family (and we know so many of you are) and would like to let us know how you're doing -we'd love to hear from you!
