Higher Ground Day Center
On January 1, 2000, Triad Health Project opened the doors to Higher Ground, an adopted communal retreat and resource center for persons infected or in any way affected by HIV/AIDS. Located in a picturesque neighborhood near downtown Greensboro, Higher Ground offers hot, nutritious, family-style lunches three days a week along with support groups; educational programs; a counseling site; traditional and alternative therapies; artistic, spiritual, and therapeutic workshops; and recreational activities.
Established as a conduit for area faith communities to get involved in Guilford County's HIV/AIDS crisis, Higher Ground's programs continue to nurture inclusive, nondenominational roots while remaining flexibly abreast of the changing "face" of HIV/AIDS. Higher Ground proposes to be a community network wherein THP clients may connect with peers, volunteers, community resources, counselors, and health professionals in a nurturing, communal setting. Ultimately, for its participants, Higher Ground is a safe place ... a place to explore oneself and the world in the light of the very intense journeys HIV/AIDS presses upon all of us.
Monthly calendars are available by mail. If you are interested in providing a lunch or service for our Higher Ground community, please contact Mark Cassity, Director of Higher Ground day center, at 336-274-5637.
