Today... I bathed and prayed to the universe, just driven across town to help people, without any AHCH funds for gas tank ; and then was called enroute in for a small donation pick up from a donor. Me and Robert made a pot of mac and cheese burger and fed half the neighborhood, many of our neighbors have HIV; or they may be ex-guest who moved nearby. These are very low income, courageous patients, fighting for stable health and still in need of community support. Thanks to AHCH intervention, 5-minute at a time mentorship talks and quality org. referrals these are not homeless people anymore. My ex guests now are paying city taxes again, paying thru the rental fees - landlord payments. Our neighbors ravished by the HiV virus, are not living under bridge, or sleeping on a friend's couch somehwere, anywhere.

My mission here is simple, I have no bling-bling or fancy auto. Instead of mind of complaint I will remain grateful that I am still alive, when so many even stronger than I have passed away from AIDS complications (lost 1991-2012= more than 100 friends and 3-partners). Keeping to an active volunteer schedule, I live with full blown AIDS; and my heart collapsed in 2008. My mind races, my body is weaker, still in physical recovery, lots of those nasty Rx side affects. Whenever I feel like I cannot bear muvh more I simply walk out the door and try to brighten someone else's day. Take time to tecah guest and visitors urban AIDS life skills, to advise on how to navigate charitable groups, to talk on the hotline to help others find a program or service- maybe a little over all view of what it is here in Houston. Even if I am stranded in bed I can speak and communicate over the AHCH sponsored HIV/AIDS Hotline. A fggod day for me is to make a difference in somebody elses' life. To ease the sufferings of birth, old age, disease and death

When people are hungry we should give them bread, if we have no bread then we should give them something. Maybe embed a new concept, or just talk to them and give hope, listen to them. How about tell a joke-bring a smile-give something from our soul to the otehr persons. Someone in front of us-suffering in front of our own eyes. People surviving AIDS have a lot of harsh days on their plates. Funny, your hugs are lots better than any doctor's drugs.

Please donate to the WEST HEIGHTS HOUSE food bank, furniture bank, now in need of gently worn winter clothing, warm quilts and blankets-URGENT.
World peace thru cause and effect - one person at a time. AHCH is nearing the 600 figure on number of people we actually served with our various housing programs-since 1994. This feat was accoplished by public donation; and NO city or federal funds were ever used
