Make a difference in the life of a person with HIV/AIDS!

Posted on October 22, 2012 by admin

CareTeams are groups of 4-7 volunteers who provide practical and emotional support to a person or household affected by the loneliness and isolation of HIV/AIDS and/or addiction. CareTeam members build supportive relationships with those we serve through:

· Listening nonjudgmentally · Sharing coffee or a meal · Giving a ride to the doctor · Visiting when sick · Celebrating special occasions

Training topics include:

· HIV/AIDS 101 · Grief and loss · Active listening · Mental health · Addiction and recovery · Working with stigmatized populations

Volunteers agree to a commitment of a minimum of 3 hours per month for one year.

The next Rosehedge Multifaith Works CareTeam training is Saturday, October 27th from 8:45am to 5pm at 1401 E. Jefferson.
