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!
Monthly Musings from THP's 
Executive Director

 

A few weeks ago I took a hike at Salem Lake and came upon a sure sign that fall was on the way - a solitary reddish leaf on the trail. 

It always surprises me after the warmth of summer that fall will actually come again. Maybe it's because here at THP, the seasons are pretty much indistinguishable from one another.

 

The needs of our clients are constant throughout the year - the need for food, housing, and access to care. That's often the short list and we do the best we can with our means at hand to meet those needs.

 

 

That's why your year round support is so critical to us. It's the age old equation of supply vs. demand and I wish I could tell you that after 27 years the demand on our services was down. But you know that I cannot.

 

So I hope you'll circle your calendar today for Sunday, December 8th and the 22nd Annual Winter Walk for AIDS. I know the weather may not feel like it, but it will be here before we know it.

 

Addison Ore, Executive Director

And we hope it will be another beautiful and unseasonably warm day for this year's walk but if it's not, we certainly know by now that you are not fair

weather friends.

 

As always, with gratitude -

A World Dance Benefit Show
for Triad Health Project

Torque Tribal Fusion Bellydance, the professional dance troupe of Twisted Dance Studios, invites the public to their 5th Annual Project Shimmy, a world dance showcase to benefit Triad Health Project. The show will be held on Saturday September 14, 2013 at 7:30 PM at the Gail Bower Huggins Auditorium in the Odell Building on the campus of Greensboro College. Project Shimmy is held each year to raise vital funding and awareness for Triad Health Project in addition to providing the public with an opportunity to experience a variety of world dance styles.

 

Torque began Project Shimmy in 2008 as a way to help Triad Health Project meet the needs of individuals living with HIV / AIDS and their loved ones. "Bellydance is a style of dance that is often misunderstood by the public, and, unfortunately, so is HIV / AIDS" say Lynn Hoffman and Sarah Sills, Torque troupe members and co-owners of Twisted Dance Studios. "When we heard of THP and its services, we felt it was a natural choice to have our show benefit this organization because of the misconceptions held about the dance and the disease. Hopefully, the funds and awareness we raise through this event can help THP to better serve their clients and address misconceptions about HIV / AIDS through the education and service programs they provide."

 

The program features dance professionals from across North Carolina who perform a variety of Middle Eastern and world dance styles.  Audience members can also purchase raffle tickets for prizes to be given away during the show.

 

Tickets are $20 for adults, $10 for students with a valid student ID, and $5 for kids 12 and under.

Cooking with Ninevah

This recipe is my adaptation of a muesli-type cereal that I was served in a small restaurant near Tusayan, Arizona, when my family drove from North Carolina to the Grand Canyon in July 2009.  I was amazed that what seemed like a small serving of muesli, when paired with yogurt, fresh fruit and a small amount of milk, "stuck to my ribs" and kept away my usual craving for "morning nibbles".  I do not know if the restaurant made their muesli, or if it was commercially produced, but when I could not find a similar commercial product, I experimented with different ingredients until I created Murray's Muesli.
 

Murray's Muesli 

  • 3 cups old-fashioned oats (not instant)
  • 1 cup steel-cut oats
  • cup toasted wheat or oat bran (sold in the cereal aisle)
  • cup toasted wheat germ (sold in the
    cereal aisle but could be omitted to make the cereal gluten free)
  • cup flax seed (flax seed...not ground as meal)
  • cup chia seed (optional)
  • cup dried, unsweetened coconut (sold in bulk as coconut chips)
  • cup slivered almonds, coarsely broken
  • cup walnuts, coarsely broken
  • cup pecans, coarsely broken
  • cup unsalted sunflower seeds
  • organic, dried cherries, chopped (I use organic as there is less added sugar. I also recommend that you chop the cherries by hand with a knife instead of a food chopper.  The cherries are very sticky and "gum-up" around the blade of a chopper)
  • 5 organic, pitted dates, chopped (once again...organic has less added sugar)
  • cup raisins

Mix these ingredients together in an airtight 2 quart container. 

Makes approximately 12 one-half cup servings.

 

To serve, place ingredients in cereal or soup bowl in the following order:

  1. cup Murray's Muesli
  2. 3 heaping spoonfuls of yogurt (approx.1/4 cup) 
  3. - 2/3 cup chopped fruit 
  4. Milk, as desired.

Volunteers Needed!
Once again, it is time for two of our major annual volunteer opportunities: The Mother of All mailings and Thanksgiving Meal Deliveries!
 
The "Mother of All Mailings" used to be a full-day's project of helping us mail our our Winter Walk for AIDS brochures. In recent years it has become more streamlined, so we like to think of it as the "Third Cousin- Twice Removed of All Mailings". We still need about 10-15 volunteers to offer 4-5 hours on the morning of Saturday, October 12.
 
The other major volunteer opportunity is for our Client Thanksgiving Meal Delivery. You'll need to come to the Greensboro Coliseum on Thanksgiving morning, Thursday, November 28, to pick-up a handful of meals to delivery to THP clients. 
 
 
 
Both events require volunteers to sign up in advance via email to Ken KeetonThanks!
