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!

TlGLA has changed the minds hearts and souls of thousands over the past decade to those living with or affected by HIV. As a volunteer I have had the opportunity to be a part of the magic of loving compassion that oir clients so desperately need and benefit from. This is by far one of the best non profit organizations in LA! Here's to the next decade!!!!

Life Group came along in my life when I was surrounded by loving friends, an accepting family, and understanding clients...and still I felt alone in my new diagnosis of HIV.

Soon after my HIV Positive diagnosis I found the Poz Life Weekend Seminar. The safe space, unconditional love, and informative seminars set me on a path of healing and acceptance.

Six years later, I am a volunteer with this life changing, inspiring organization and continue to feel the ripples of love, acceptance, and honesty.

At the recommendation of another member in my weekly HIV+ support group, I attended a one-day seminar provided by The life Group LA in Pasadena. I was so impressed by the presenters, and more importantly the organization and their mission, I attended their much touted quarterly POZ Life seminar. The experience cannot be described accurately in words. The compassionate environment provides a safe, loving, non-judgmental approach, commitment to a supportive weekend, and truly an enlightening adventure one must attend to fully grasp the experience. I was so excited I became an active volunteer, and praise the committed giving of all involved. As a non-profit we accept no government funding and therefore rely primarily on our fundraising events engineered by Executive Director Sunnie Rose Berger, the committed presenters, and the many volunteers for their tireless dedication to those infected and affected buy HIV.

There is no agency that does or can do what this agency can do. They changed me and I was then able to transform my life. Group has more compassion than the people who volunteer for life group.

I have been volunteering for the Life Group and people they are serving for more than six years. Why? Because of its mission. Mission and commitment to provide education and support for people infected and affected with HIV/AIDS. The Life Group Los Angeles offers them life tools…so they can live their life healthily. The Life Group and all volunteers work with a family concept. We take care of each other and we take care of our clients.

Who would think that creating a space and bringing people together to simply offer of themselves would be the catalyst for such a deeply personal and profound experience for all - clients (affected or infected), volunteers (Angels in action), and presenters (doctors, health care workers, social workers, survivors, teachers, chaplains and more). Such is POZ Life Weekend Seminar. Talk about the human experience working at full potential. My definition of a true Spiritual Awakening - love in ACTION!

This year we took got the opportunity to bring our services to Arizona where the people were blown away by our compassion, dedication and service to the HIV/Aids community. It is amazing to see people transform over the weekend- to become empowered with medical, health and life decisions. The volunteers and staff are amazing and we love what we do! Until there is a cure, we hope to always be around emotionally supporting people infected/affected by HIV/Aids and their friends and family for FREE. We would also love to bring this to other places that need our services. I am blessed to be a part of The Life Group.

This group provides a wide array of information to persons recently diagnosed with chronic, serious medical conditions such as HIV, or Hepatitis C. Their intensive weekend provides information from medical experts, emotional support, guidance on available benefits, continuing life activities such as dating, social engagement and work. I have worked with them for several years and often hear back from participants on how valuable the weekend was to them in helping to adjust to their condition and restore a good quality of life. Many look back on their weekend as the first step back to a "normal" life.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

step up their marketing as there are many, many people who need this group, but are unaware of them because they are not large or well funded but do their job excellently with a core of dedicated volunteers.

Would you volunteer for this group again?
