Triad Health Project Mission and History
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.
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.
Triad Health Project began in 1986 as a grassroots effort among fourteen friends to deal with the emerging health crisis and the barriers and discrimination their friends with HIV and AIDS were facing. Through the years, our services have adapted to the changing reality of HIV management. Presently, THP is one of the largest AIDS service organizations in North Carolina, with a culturally diverse staff of nearly 20 and a volunteer base that exceeds five hundred. As the primary community service provider, we offer Case Management, our Higher Ground day center, a Client Food Pantry, Education and Prevention Outreach, and HIV testing.
Triad Health Project receives individual, foundation and corporate contributions; federal and state grants; and funding from local governments. THP is also a proud member agency of the United Way of Greater Greensboro and the United Way of Greater High Point. All programs and services at Triad Health Project are offered to any eligible recipient free of charge.
