Hope & Help offers Support Groups for people with HIV, those who may be at-risk, and those who have been impacted by HIV, such as being a friend or family member of someone with HIV. These Support Groups provide a safe, confidential, and encouraging environment for Group Members to share their stories, testimonies, and triumphs.
Each group is designed to help Group Members create a strong support network, understand medical treatment, and better shape their journey to optimum health and wellness. All Groups are free of cost, provide a complimentary meal during each meeting, and are held at Hope & Help.
If you need help getting to and from any Support Group meeting, ask your Group Leader about Hope & Help's Free Transportation Program!
