H.E.R.O. for Children remains the only organization in Georgia
solely focused on Quality of Life care for children with HIV/AIDS
The Holiday of HEROs (H.O.H) program allows us to partner with other AIDS organizations and hospitals in Georgia to provide children with one item they need and one gift they want during the holiday season. Our partner organizations include Jerusalem House, AID Atlanta, and AID Athens, as well as pediatric AIDS clinics in Atlanta, Macon, Augusta, Albany, and Savannah. An HIV/AIDS diagnosis for those living in low-income families, which is our highest service population, usually comes with great financial difficulty due to healthcare costs and the inability of an infected adult to work consistently.
Last year, the community helped H.E.R.O. for Children provide gifts for over 340 children! This success was due to the commitment of businesses, churches, community partners and individuals who sponsored children’s "wish lists," supplied gifts and gift cards, and provided monetary donations. This year, we are inviting businesses, community partners, churches and individuals to get involved, once more, with this exciting program. This is how you can help:
A week-long, residential summer camp program that provides recreational and educational activities to HERO children. It serves youths between the ages of 6 and 16.
A one-on-one mentoring program in which children ages 6 to 16 (upon admission) receive quality of life support that improves their self-esteem, self-confidence, goal-setting, socialization skills and academic performance.
A program in which high school-aged children attend an annual, weekend retreat, as well as seminars and workshops throughout the year, that address topics including the college application process.
