Supporting People Right Here in Our Local Community Who Have HIV

The Tucson Interfaith HIV/AIDS Network (TIHAN) provides a unique network of support services that would not otherwise exist: a safety net for emergency needs; opportunities for peer support and socializing; and classes to help people live well, access support, and increase resiliency.

Of the 390 people living with HIV who TIHAN supported in 2019, most are gay men. Almost a quarter are women with HIV. Over half of TIHAN’s CarePartners are people of color. Almost all we serve are living below the poverty level. And every one of the people we serve are beautiful, loving, people who appreciate the support services and programs made possible by your contributions from this benefit.

100 Emergency AIDS Orphans in Kenya

The Center for Health and Hope supports 261 vulnerable AIDS orphans in Kenya. The program is not an orphanage, but a community based program that enables grandparents and guardians to care for the impoverished children, thanks to the extra support for school fees, uniforms, food, and shelter

In 2020 the Center for Health and Hope needs to raise an extra $20,000 to meet an “emergency,” because a Texas church (because of its own internal problems) suddenly quit supporting 100 AIDS orphans—meaning the children could no longer go to school or get food support. In January the children were about to be denied entrance to the School, when the Center Board “rescued” them and promised to raise the additional funds. We have raised the money for the first three months. The Tucson Swinging@AIDS Concert is vital to these efforts to keep them fed, clothed, and in school.
