HPOG provides countless HIV educational presentation to community human services agencies, to increase HIV awareness and sensitivity in an effort to stop the spread of HIV and to eliminate HIV stigma. To date, The Health Partnership of Georgia, Inc. is the only sole HIV service, prevention and advocacy organization located in Douglasville, Georgia.
Over 20 years ago, after experiencing the painful death of a close love one due to AIDS, a burning desire was ignited in the heart of the founder of HPOG. At a young age the founder, along with her mother, began their HIV prevention mandate. Developing posters and flyers with crayons, glitter and construction paper the young lady hit the streets “determined to inform everyone in the world about HIV”! During this time, she would be the youngest in the AIDS walks and often shared her room and bunk bed with homeless HIV positive women that her mother helped with in the community. As time went on, her knowledge of HIV expanded into a life-long passion to serve those impacted. Despite HPOG’s inception in 2014, it seems it can be said that HPOG was established over 20 years ago, by a little girl, from a small North Carolina town.
