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!

"One who walks in another's tracks leaves no footprints."

~ Proverb

 

 I've been thinking about footprints a lot as we gear up for the 22nd Annual Winter Walk for AIDS on Sunday, December 8th.

 

Hopefully you know by now that Winter Walk is moving to the beautiful campus of UNCG this year. This isn't the first move for Winter Walk and in fact, the walk has covered a lot of ground in its long history. What began as a candlelight neighborhood stroll with a handful of folks back in 1991 has grown into a powerful wave of humanity covering several streets in Greensboro.

 

Over two decades of footprints, all walking as one to support people in our community living with HIV/AIDS. That's a whole lot of steps and a whole lot of love.

 

The theme for this year's Winter Walk is #onecurelove. Yes, we know that love alone cannot conquer this epidemic but we also know that it goes a long way in eradicating stigma, increasing awareness and perhaps, most importantly to our clients, providing practical support.

 

So I hope you'll walk in love with us this year on Sunday, December 8th. Our path may be new this year, but our destination - and vision - remains the same.

 

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

 

With a grateful heart,

   

Winter Walk at UNCG!

Cooking with Ninevah

 

It's almost time for holiday baking. This year, try something different and bake these colorful, delicious biscotti. The process is actually quite simple...but don't tell your friends and family!

   

 

 

 

   

Coconut, Cranberry, Almond Biscotti    Adapted from Whole Living Magazine

(Makes approx. 2 dozen)

  

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 cup stone-ground yellow cornmeal

cup+ 1 Tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut

tsp baking powder

tsp coarse salt

2 large eggs

cup granulated cane sugar

5 Tblsp + 1 tsp extra-virgin olive oil

tsp coconut extract

1 cup dried cranberries

1 cup whole, unroasted, unsalted almonds

 

1.  Heat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl, whisk flour, cornmeal, coconut, baking powder and salt. 

2.  In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix eggs, sugar, oil, coconut milk and extract on medium speed until well combined.  Reduce speed, add flour mixture, and mix until just combined. Using a spatula, fold in cranberries and almonds.

3.  Transfer dough to a parchment-lined baking sheet and pat into a 14-by-4-inch log or two smaller logs, approximately 4 inches wide.  Bake until firm and golden, 30 to 35 min.  Transfer to a wire rack to cool to touch and reduce oven to 325 degrees.

4.  Once cool, transfer log to a cutting board and, using a serrated knife, cut diagonally into 1/2 inch slices.  Arrange slices on parchment-lined baking sheet and bake, rotating half-way through, until just golden around the edges, 15 to 18 minutes.  Let cool completely.

Biscotti can be stored in an airtight container up to two weeks.

Mark's Mentions

  

 

The story goes that about 2400 years ago, some Greeks with not much to do were arguing over the reality of motion. A man named Diogenes offered his proof in favor by standing up and walking out of the room. The resulting phrase,
Solvitur ambulando, ("It is solved by walking.") caught on. For meditation, problem-solving, health issues, even great escapes, we hear the words over and over as motto, lore and advice.

 

Mark Cassity, Director of Higher Ground

On December 8th our footsteps are our prayers; every one planted peacefully on the earth to mark justice and hope for people living with HIV and AIDS. What can one person do in the face of such an overwhelming crisis? For one day the answer is very simple:  Solvitur ambulando.

 

See you there. 

Volunteer Opportunities
We have two great volunteer opportunities available in the next few months. First is our annual Thanksgiving meal delivery. This year, we will be distributing packaged Thanksgiving meals from the Greensboro Coliseum, so we will need folks who can pick up meals and deliver them to our clients. If you are interested in volunteering, please email Ken Keeton.
 
 
We also have an opportunity to raise funds through complimentary gift wrapping at the Barnes and Noble and Friendly Shopping center for donations on Monday, December 16th from 9 am to 9 pm. We will need volunteers in shifts, so if you are available to volunteer that day, please email Shana Carignan

About Giving Thanks

  I'm learning, each day, that everything--ALL of it--is really radically okay. When I realize I'm suffering, that's when I begin to stop suffering, even just a little bit. There is "awesome" in everything... every...little...thing. Our clients teach me that. When I have the honor to facilitate the men's group, "Life With a Plus Sign" at Higher Ground, I am struck each week by the valour and wisdom that emerges from the creation of a safe space for brotherhood, for agreeing, for disagreeing, for holding each other
Kevin Varner, Director of Prevention and Education

accountable, and building on our strengths.


It is my fervent belief that when HIV seeks to weaken us, T-cell by T-cell, we must capitalize on our strengths. We must show the virus that though it wants us to focus solely on "What is Wrong", instead, we must make a right turn and focus on "What is Right" with us. Rather than focusing on weakness, shame, disability, let us instead focus-all of us-on strength, integrity and ability. Let us be thankful as we enter this season of Thanksgiving for all that is right, all that is strong, with the daily knowledge that "Everything is Radically Okay".
