Hear from some of our members about how beneficial the services and programs that the Heart of Richmond AIDS Society provides:


“I have been a member of HORAS for approx. 5 years and during this time I have accessed the Support Group; the Weekly calendar of Events; the Grocery Assistance Programme and the Supplementary Health Fund. The support group is a great place to sit and talk freely – we talk about issues whether it be health or emotional or chat about everyday life. The Heart of Richmond has been a very supportive organisation – more so than others. The Calendar of Events throughout the year is beneficial for Mind, Body and Spirit.”


“As a member for some 17 years I appreciate all the support provided by The Heart of Richmond. I especially like the socialization aspect at Dinners and Brunches. In accessing most of the services I enjoy the sense of community; both the financial support and GAP grocery programmes are helpful for extra needs at crucial times during the month. I appreciate the different people I meet here as well as Brian, Joanna, Neora and Anne Marie and The Board of Directors.”


“I have been a member of HORAS for 4 years and I became a member to feel connected to my community as I had moved to Richmond in 2012. I currently access the support group and attend Weekly Calendar events; and receive the monthly Grocery card. I don’t have many connections in Richmond, The Church Community Is welcoming which is a positive influence in my life. The Heart of Richmond is a one of kind organization in the community of Richmond. Without it I would struggle to feel connected to my community. The volunteers and the staff truly make this organisation extra special.”
