Volunteer

Triad Health Project touches lives far beyond that of a particular client – gathering affected family members, volunteers, faith communities and those most at-risk in a remarkable continuum of care that naturally extends to and from the THP offices. I don’t know what to tell you – this agency saves lives and, to me, it’s a message to the world about what community and passion and love can accomplish.

Geoff, longtime THP volunteer

THP is a volunteer-driven organization. Without your assistance we cannot meet the needs of our clients and community. Don’t underestimate the power you have to make a difference! No matter your talents or area of interest, there is a place for you at THP. Volunteers play an intricate and essential part in every facet of our work – from direct client care to participating in Dining For Friends and Winter Walk for AIDS and Ron Johnson 5K Run, annual fund and awareness raising events sponsored by THP.

Our volunteers often comment on the personal growth, rewards, and life altering experiences they have encountered in their work with HIV/AIDS. We feel confident that you too will find numerous rewards in helping to give people affected by HIV/AIDS the most compassionate gift one person can give another – the chance to live a fuller, longer, and healthier life. Here are the many ways you can be part of the life-saving work of THP:

Event Volunteers

Volunteers involved periodically with THP community awareness and fundraising events like Winter Walk for AIDS and Dining for Friends. Volunteers are needed to help with bulk mailing, registration, accounting, and facilities. No training required, but Event Volunteers are welcome to attend any training sessions in which they may be interested.

Red Ribbon Volunteers

Volunteers involved in day to day functions of the agency including client medical transportation, client grocery delivery, pick-up of food and Ensure nutritional supplement from food banks, meal delivery, HIV testing clinics, and annual bulk mailing preparation.

Special Projects Volunteers

Volunteers involved with agency projects such as food drives, holiday events, recreation events, support projects, and fundraising. Volunteers may work directly with THP staff or in a supervisory role coordinating other volunteers.

Higher Ground Day Center Volunteers

Triad Health Project’s day center offers a variety of activities, programs. Lunch is served on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Volunteers are needed to be an active participant in meal provision and preparation, service, cleaning, and socializing with participants. Mutual respect and confidentiality are required of Higher Ground Volunteers while in the house. Volunteers can also provide Higher Ground with special skills or talents while at the house to best find their voice. A “ministry of loitering” is encouraged while at Higher Ground.
