NEW LOGO:  Communicating Our Commitment

 

Did you notice something different? I hope so. Today, I am proud to reveal Project Transitions' new logo. After more than two decades, we decided to retire the old logo and adopt a new design, as our mission has greatly evolved. The new logo clearly communicates who we are and what we do: Project Transitions serves people living with HIV/AIDS by providing supportive living, housing and hospice in compassionate and caring environments. 

 

When we first opened our doors 26 years ago, it was common for our clients to succumb to AIDS on a daily basis. Some of our long term supporters recall the days when friends and loved ones would walk into Doug's House-- our hospice facility-- and never leave. Now, we are literally saving lives. Clients enter our hospice care, and they usually walk out the front door once their medications effectively treat the virus. 

 

As medications have improved, our mission has evolved as well. Since our clients are living longer and healthier lives, demand for transitional housing and supportive care has skyrocketed. I believe our logo reflects the new reality that our community is facing.  Our new logo features a house, warmly wrapped by the red ribbon-- the universal symbol for people living with HIV/AIDS. 

Becca & Andy Thomas

 

I would like to thank Becca and Andy Thomas for hosting a special logo reveal party Wednesday night for some of our strongest supporters. 

 

I truly hope this logo will communicate our commitment to those who are living with HIV/AIDS.


My Best,

CROWDFUNDING:  Recuperative Care Program
A few dollars can go a long way. We're turning to the CROWD. We need your help to purchase medical equipment, bedding and other items for our new recuperative care program. T his initiative will be a low or no-cost care program that would address an unmet need for hospice patients, waiting to be discharged but unable to leave because they are homeless and still in need of medical care and other services. 

Please click here to see the items that you can directly purchase to make this vital program a reality. 

MAXIMUS Grant
Project Transitions is proud to announce receiving $2,000 from the MAXIMUS Foundation. The money will be used for general operating expenses associated with Doug's House and our transitional housing program. 

MAXIMUS is a global company that works with both businesses and governments to increase public interactions. Employees make contributions to the MAXIMUS Foundation, which is matched by the company. 

MAXIMUS Vice President Michael Jarrett, Project Transitions Executive Director Craig Thibodeau, MAXIMUS Deputy Director of Training and Project Transitions Grant Manager Linelle Clark-Brown were on hand this past month to receive the money.
