Stone Soup Needs Ready-to-Eat Foods
Stone Soup is increasingly in need of ready-to-eat foods for the homeless. Because they are homeless, these clients have no means to cook food and rarely have access to basic utensils such as can openers. AFH is serving more homeless persons since it became part of The Way Home, Houston's coordinated access program for housing assistance.
Under the program anyone who is homeless, regardless of HIV status, can come to AFH to apply for housing assistance. If they are HIV-negative, AFH works with other area programs to find them housing. Those who are HIV-positive are placed in an AFH housing program. All who come in to apply are allowed access to the Stone Soup pantry during their visit.
You can help AFH feed the homeless with foods that require no preparation or utensils. Please collect items from the list below and deliver them to our offices at 6260 Westpark Dr., Suite 100, Monday-Friday, 10:00 AM-6:00 PM. All items should have a top that the client can pop open and use without a can opener. Alternatively, you can make a monetary donation to Stone Soup.

Thank You for Supporting Camp Hope!
Because of your gifts, nearly 100 children were able to attend Camp Hope this summer. Camp Hope gives HIV-positive youth a much needed respite from the everyday stresses of the disease. More than that, it brings each child new skills for maintaining medical adherence, building healthy relationships, and envisioning a better future for themselves.
A two-year study by Baylor International Pediatric AIDS Initiative found that campers’ viral loads are reduced for up to six months after attending camp.
Thank you for helping our campers experience the life-changing magic of Camp Hope.
It's not too late to donate! Camp Hope 2018 is less than a year away!
