The Art of Living


Michael* came to AFH jobless, homeless, HIV+, and struggling to survive. He moved into one of our housing facilities where he slowly began to recover. As his health improved, his sense of self and a connection with his talents returned as well. Earlier this year, with his self-esteem restored, he courageously decided to venture back into professional life. Imagine our joy when Michael delivered the following message to our housing program staff this past summer:

“I will no longer be needing your assistance in the form of housing services due to my recent acquisition of a new job out of state...I appreciate all the help you have given me and promise that as soon as I am able will pay your kindness forward in the form of a donation to your program.”

Today, Michael is the Program Director for a prestigious arts organization in a major American city. His success is proof that HIV/AIDS is no match for a unified and supportive community willing to stand up for the dignity and value of every person, regardless of his or her HIV status.

Michael's story is an example of the outcomes we can achieve with your support. Our Strategic Plan for 2016-2019 seeks to build upon this success by focusing on four core areas:

1. Excellence in Programming
2. Partnerships
3. Innovation in Funding
4. Demonstrated Outcomes
