Reviews for Life Group LA Inc
I have been a participant, a volunteer and a fundraiser. I have seen first hand the benefit that is provided to so many. I have witnessed adults, minors and senior citizens benefit....Gay, straight, male, female, alike. I know the monies donated are highly leveraged by the tremendous volunteers that make up The LifeGroup LA!
That is why I ride:

I have seen first hand how those affected on so many levels are provided comfort and understanding that they never knew existed. This is why I volunteer and donate. I also know that this group is VERY careful with how they spend the money they are given!

The LifeGroup was one of the first places I found when I was newly diagnosed in 2008. Although many people felt then, and still now that it's no big deal, believe me it is. There is still huge stigma, people still do die, and information and resources are extremely scattered. It was the LifeGroup that empowered me through the initial weekend where to find answers to my questions and where to find hope for my fears. Staying involved as a volunteer since then has helped me remain at a higher spiritual vibration because the group walks the walk. Everyone involved is at their highest level of compassion when representing and moreover even when they're not. The group changes lives, and while many non profits do great work, very few can say they transform people and then promise to be there for them no matter what. HIV is still scary and still with us at times in worse ways than before. The LifeGroup LA is a group that understands this and welcomes anyone affected in any way and from any walk of life.
I was a client.. I've become a donor since I attended 5 years ago. Each time I make a contribution, I know how much good my gift is doing. I also get a nice letter with an update of the years accomplishments so far and goals. I follow them on facebook and see all that they do and read all the comments posted by other clients who have attended and it's confirmed that I too helped make a difference. It is a very rewarding experience from having attended to now giving them the means to do more seminars so others can have the same life changing experience I had.
I'll never forget my experience that I had at a POZ weekend. I have to agree 100% with the writer of this article. ( http://www.aumag.org/2016/04/21/sunnie-rose-berger-advocate/ ) The warmth and beautiful energy of the room and everyone in it was a feeling I've never felt before. You're such a wonderful person Sunnie Rose Berger and you have touched many souls with your love and generosity. Angel's like you are hard to come by. You rock!!
It has been my honor volunteering for the Life Group LA. Knowing that I played a small part in changing lives for the better, and empowering people through knowledge and support, has been very fulfilling.
Such an amazing organization ! Talk about the many types of support they provide. It's really an organization where one can walk in and let down their guards and learn to heal. Thank you guys !!
This workshop really transformed my life. I am newly diagnosed and felt isolated and despair before this weekend. Now I feel hope and know that joy is possible. I feel love in my heart instead of loneliness. Thank you.
I've been volunteering for almost 2 years now and everytime is a great experience. I have never been to a place with such love and acceptance. I would of never thought of being part of such a great organization!
Life Group LA is a non stop 24/7 non profit group that does so much for so many! We are proud to know them and be involved with them whenever we can. It is an honor to join them in their many different events and ventures that they do for so many! They make a different in so many people's lives. Hats off to all of them. They deserve so much credit for all they do!!! Davida Aprons & Kosher Kurls
What this organization does is nothing short of amazing. I have seen lives transformed over the course of just a weekend over and over. It is so refreshing to see and organization that has no other goal than to give everything they can to those in need. The presentations are top notch at their seminars and the loving compassion that every volunteer brings is rare to see. What is great about them also is that everything is authentic and nothing feels forced or fake. I wish that every person would get the experience of attending one of their weekends!
