The History of Higher Ground

On January 1, 2000, Triad Health Project opened the doors to Higher Ground, an adopted communal retreat and resource center for people living with or affected by HIV. Originally established as a conduit for area faith communities to get involved in Guilford County’s HIV crisis, Higher Ground’s programs continue to nurture inclusive, nondenominational roots while remaining flexibly abreast of the changing “face” of HIV. Individual, civic organization and local business volunteers are a vital part of the Higher Ground community of friends.

Higher Ground proposes to be a community network where THP clients may connect with peers, volunteers, community resources, counselors, and health professionals in a nurturing, communal setting. Ultimately, for its participants, Higher Ground is a safe place … a place to explore oneself and the world in the light of the very intense journeys HIV presses upon all of us.

Monthly Calendar

On Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 12:00, Higher Ground gathers outdoors to share a communal meal and fellowship. In response to Covid-19, social distancing is maintained, masks are required (and can be provided) and groups of no more than 25 individuals gather at any one time.

REACH – our longstanding addiction support group – has resumed its Friday meetings at 12:15.

For further information about Higher Ground’s ongoing services, support and plans, please contact the House Manager, Justin Baldwin, at 336-274-5637 or jbaldwin@triadhealthproject.org.
