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.

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.

After suffering in silence and shame for over 25 years from living with HIV. Someone suggested i attend a weekend seminar. That seminar transformed me and allowed me to start the life I now have. I was able to, for the first time, talk about being diagnosed in the Navy and the way I was treated. The shame and isolation I experienced both emotionally and physically was paralyzing. At that weekend the volunteers provided a safe, loving, supportive environment. The facilitators were amazing and also allowed me the space and time to begin healing that shame. From the first phone call with Sunnie Rose the experience was incredibly loving.
I have worked with other agencies and recieved services, but none provide the service, or the support that Life Group does as well. The reason is that for the first time I was in a room with those affected by the disease and got to hear how my disease affected them. I was so isolated and had no idea that my family was as well. This experience coupled with the compassion with which they approach and provide services was the key to my returning to life.
I went to school and recieved my Masters Degree and I am currently applying to Ph.D. programs. This experience informs all that I do, and have done.
There is no other agency that provides this service, this support, and this compassion. They do not duplicate services of any kind, there is no where else to get what they provide except from them. Their work needs to be available to more, and accessible by many.
Life's are not just changed, but saved by this program.

One weekend CAN change your life forever. Without the resources and support I received from LifeGroup I would not be here today. I now understand who I am and what my choices in life are. The generosity of the donation of money and support to LifeGroup has helped me gain control of my life by giving me the skills I needed to navigate insurance issues, medication choices, doctors, counseling, nutrition and care. I cannot thank LIFEGROUP enough for their time and volunteers. I'm alive because of Sunny and this life changing organization.

I went to the weekend seminar feeling afraid and alone but I left with new insight and friends and a yearning for more in life which I now know I can have. I am grateful for the volunteers and staff who dedicate themselves to making this safe space possible for us all.

I WAS CURIOUS AS TO WHAT 'THE LIFE GROUP' WAS ALL ABOUT... AND EXPRESSED MY INTERESTED IN ATTENDING. SUNNY ROSE CALLED ME PERSONALLY, (WHICH MADE MY MIND UP IMMEDIATELY) WHAT WITH THE EXURBERANCE, AND BEAUTIFUL DEMEANER, AND PASSION. I LIVE HERE IN PALM SPRINGS, AND THE 'WEEK-END' EVENT TOOK PLACE ON THE MARX ESTATE..... ALL THE VOLUNTEERS WERE WONDERFUL, CARING INDIVIDUALS, BUT I HAVE TO SAY BEING GREETED, WELCOMED AND HUGGED BY SUNNY, STARTED THE WHOLE BALL ROLLING.

I CAME AWAY WITH AN OVERALL SENSE OF SELF-EMPOWERMENT, CONFIDENCE AND LOVING MY LIFE (I HAD BEEN SUFFERING FROM TERRIBLE DEPRESSION), THROUGH ALL THE WORKSHOPS A FEW OF WHICH WERE ON HEALTH ISSUES WITH HIV+, DIET/EXCERCISE, SEXUAL PRACTICES, DATING, WORKSHOPS IN DEVELOPING CONFIDENCE, AND LOVING WHO WE ARE AND HOW MUCH I CAN BRING TO THE TABLE......

IT WAS A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE, AND I WOULD LOVE TO VOLUNTEER TO HELP HAVE A SUCCESSFUL WORKSHOP HERE IN THE DESERT. ALEX IRVINE

I participated in The Life Group weekend in April 2011. I knew about the seminar from my previous volunteer work. I had spent time raising a child and I wanted to re-focus my life on what was important to me. The Life Group weekend was the perfect place for me. I re-aligned my priorities to best serve my health and well being. I reconnected with committed compassionate caregivers serving a worthy goal. I found myself to be wise and powerful when I had lost hope. I have immense gratitude for the synergy of The Life Group and it's volunteers.

Since that time I have become a volunteer myself. I give because I have been given much. Thank you.

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

Secure adequate funding that this work can continue. Expand the service area so that this program can be experienced in more parts of the world.
