"We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope."
~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
I was delighted to run across the above quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. because I think it perfectly sets the stage for THP's upcoming 30th anniversary next year. And by next year, I mean all year. You see, we have a lot to remember, honor and yes, celebrate after almost three decades of service to people living with HIV/AIDS in our community.
There isn't one particular date to recognize, there are many over the years and there isn't one particular person to acknowledge or honor, there are hundreds upon hundreds. So instead, we want to pay homage to the previous 29 years as we keep our eye on the future - a future that certainly looks more hopeful for people living with HIV/AIDS than it did 30 years ago.
Most importantly, we want you to come with us on this anniversary journey. That just makes sense since many of you have been with us since the beginning. And we are well aware that this agency has survived for three decades for one simple reason - your generosity.
We look forward to sharing memories and stories with you but we also want to hear your stories. So we will be telling you about several opportunities throughout the year that will allow your voice and heart to be heard.
Because of you, our clients have never lost infinite hope.
The journey continues and we are so grateful that you are with us.
Peace to you and your families this holiday season -


Addison Ore, Executive Director


Ever wonder whats happening at Higher Ground?
Mark's Musing

Years and years ago, a beautiful man named Henry asked me if the house was open on
Christmas Day, and I told him no, it was not. He politely told me that some people didn't have anywhere to go on Christmas Day, and for that matter a lot didn't have anywhere to go on
other days either. He told me some people don't have families and others have families that won't have anything to do with them. Henry asked me if I realized that and I told him I guessed I did. Henry told me he was one of those people who didn't have anywhere to go and had one of those families that won't have anything to do with him. He said, "Why don't we open the house?" I said, "Okay," and that's the last thing I ever did to help this house be open (and full of food, music and fellowship) on Christmas.
And it's been open on Christmas Day or Eve ever since, not to mention a great number of Thanksgivings - when we're also officially closed.
And it's happening again this year thanks to a man named Johnny and a host of angels. And I can't stop being amazed. It reminds me not only the power of asking and the power of "Yes" (or in my case, "Okay"); but also that the only reason we're open on any day of the year is because a lot of people agree we need to be open, to have a place to go, to have some-body care a little, to share a meal, to mind the light.
Thank you all - and blessings from your open house.
