As a former Miss Charity America, I can say that this is a wonderful cause that can assist so many people in our community. This charity allows people to focus things other than travel expenses during their time of need. Home For the Holidays Texas, Inc takes that worry away and helps provide travel to people living with HIV/AIDS to see their family or family of choice, sometimes for the very last time. This organization is there for those people who need a lending hand.

Home For The Holidays Tx Inc provides transportation to people living with AIDS so they can be with family. We also provide cremation expenses. To my knowledge, we are the only group in Texas to provide this service. I have worked with this small group for several years and am overwhelmed with the accomplishments and tasks able to be reached. The leadership, motivation and involvement in our board president and several board members is inspiring. I am proud to be a part of this nonprofit group.

I'm so blessed to be a part of such a wonderful organization.

HFTHTx raises money to send people living with AIDS home to be with their family. Our goal is to send EVERY applicant home. Through benefit shows and personal donations we have not had to turn away an applicant down in years because of funding.

When we give an applicant a ticket home, it is such a moving experience. To see them light up emotionally reminds us just how important our work is.

Have know of the group Home for the Holidays for about 6 years. They have done outstanding work in helping those with HIV and AIDS get home to visit their families at the holidays or any critical time like a death in the family. With out this service these clients would not be able to enjoy the love of their loved ones or be there when they are also needed. Not only does it help the clients feel better but their loved one too.

Having been a former representative and former Board Member of Home for the Holiday Texas, Inc. I can speak from a first hand basis. This is a great organization that does great things for people. There is nothing more rewarding that working with the recipient to get there travel scheduled. The light on their face when you hand them their travel documents is priceless.

This organization has been a very powerful one and one of the most rewarding organizations I have ever dealt with. Home for the Holidays does what only other groups would like done and they do it with a smile on their face. Not all situations they deal with are happy ones but the reward is providing assistance where it is needed and they do it selflessly.
