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!

"Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies." 
~ Mother Teresa 

 

Like many of you, I spend a lot of my time at work doing things that seem to have nothing to do with what I think my job should be. And then there are the endless meetings - meetings that often have nothing to do with HIV/AIDS.

  

I also spend a lot of my time worrying about money, or more specifically, the lack of money. "Will there be enough for everyone?" is a question that perches heavily on my shoulders most days here. And by enough, I mean enough money to sustain our programs and services to our clients.

  

Sometimes my worrying is interrupted by small miracles that bring me back to THP's mission in powerful ways. This happened last week when one of our homeless clients was in our office and asked me for a blanket.

  

We didn't have any blankets in-house but I told him that we would get him one. I put out a call to our board of directors asking for gently used blankets and practically the next day, a faithful board member came in bearing two large bags from Belk containing several brand new blankets.

  

A few days later when the client's Case Manager handed him two brand new blankets, the client looked at her in astonishment and said, "They're new. I never imagined that I would get a new blanket."

  

So when I tell you every so often how very much your support means to our clients, I mean it. Sometimes the needs are overwhelming and sometimes they are as basic as a warm blanket.

Addison Ore, Executive Director

  

As we prepare to enter our 28th year of service to people living with HIV/AIDS in our community, we thank you for making sure that there will always be enough.

 

Very best,

Cooking with Ninevah

Last fall, I had the opportunity to take a class in Italian cooking with a wonderful chef in the Tuscan region of Italy. During the class, we made this wonderful, but quite simple, chocolate torte.  The measurements are listed in grams...which is how it was made in the class...but I have provided equivalents for American measurement in italics.   This is truly very easy to prepare and I guarantee that it will be the hit of any meal! 

Flourless Chocolate Torte (Makes 8 servings)

Ingredients:  

- 200 grams of Ghirardelli dark baking chocolate (60%cacao), broken into small pieces (buy 2 Ghirardelli 60% baking bars...use one complete bar and 7/8 sections of the second bar)  

- 100 grams (7 Tbsp) of unsalted butter, cut into chunks  

- 3 eggs at room temperature, yolks and whites divided  

- 100 grams (scant cup) granulated sugar

Directions:  Melt the chocolate and the butter in a double boiler over simmering water, stirring frequently. Beat the egg yolks and sugar in a large bowl, and then add the melted chocolate/butter mixture, stirring until blended. Beat the egg whites with a small pinch of salt in a small bowl until stiff peaks form. Use a whisk to fold the egg whites gently into the chocolate mixture until no white streaks remain.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat an 8 inch spring form pan with cooking spray. Spoon the chocolate mixture evenly into the pan and then place the pan in the center of the preheated oven. Reduce the oven temperature to 335 degrees and bake the cake for 30 minutes or until the cake begins to slightly pull away from the sides of the pan.

Release the sides of the spring form pan to allow the cake to cool. Serve slightly warm or at room temperature, topped with sweetened whipped cream.
