NorCal AIDS Cycle supports many excellent agencies in our area, and one of my favorites is the Sunburst Project. Sunburst provides services to families who have young persons infected with HIV/AIDS. The mission of Sunburst Projects is to “keep families together (family preservation) by providing services that strengthen and empower individuals, families, and communities to ensure youth living with HIV/AIDS reach their highest potential.”
Sunburst achieves it’s mission through a combination of family support services and amazing summer camp, where young people can meet and do regular “camp” activities with other HIV/AIDS youngsters. Sunburst also provides counseling services for those who are transitioning from their teen years into young adulthood, which can be a difficult time.
The Sunburst Project is just one of a dozen or so exceptional agencies supported by NorCal AIDS Cycle. Many of these agencies do not receive a lot of funding and operate on shoestrings budgets. Without the NCAC grants, some of these worthy organizations would not be able to keep operating, so your support is more vital then ever. Want to help? Then please show your support by making a contribution today. Every contribution, large or small, makes a big difference in our community!
As always, thank you for your support!
