The road home is not the same for everyone. Different Roads Home is a nonprofit organization that provides individuals living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other chronic illnesses with personalized services including support groups, mentoring programs & food assistance, to help them reach their destination on their own terms.
The Charlotte Metro Area has a number of nonprofit agencies providing services to those living with HIV/AIDS. Although there are multiple agencies providing these services, our founder Dale Pierce recognized there was still a "gap" that needed to be filled. Different Roads Home is very proud to offer the below services to our brothers and sisters living with this disease:
Cancer Caregiver/Survivor Support Group
Jeanne White-Ginder Food Pantry
Ryan White Memorial Scholarship Fund
General daily life assistance
Social & Support Groups
The MENS Room, A SAFE Space
The Good Road Mentoring Project
Free Confidential Testing
We are not through, there is still much work to be done. The leadership and Board of Directors meet regularly to discuss new services and ways to improve upon the services we currently offer. We want to hear from you, please take a moment and send us an email on your idea on how to improve or new ways we can assist others. Click the link below to email us your thoughts.
We all take different roads home. Each of us is heading for the same destination, but face our own variety of twists, turns and narrow places, as well as a few stretches that are all downhill. You and I encounter differing relationships, experiences and challenges, only to realize that somewhere along the way we arrive at the same impasse. It is a summons that will change our past, present and future.
