Working with the LifeGroupLA since its inception is a privilege. The volunteers and facilitators under the leadership of Sunnie Rose Berger offer a service of our Southern California Community unlike anything that is going on. In particular with offer the PoZ Life weekend 4x/year and anyone infected or affected by this pandemic can attend the two day seminar without charge. The POZ life weekend offers education and emotional support to those diagnosed with AIDS as well as to their family and friends.
The LifeGroupLA model of compassionate presence has transformed my life. I am definitely more peace filled after my 22 years of working in the role of Presenter and now Board Member.

The Life Group LA affords persons infected and affected by HIV/AIDS to attend a POZ life weekend without charge to the attendee to gather information about the disease, treatment, nutrition, complimentary therapies. There are ongoing support groups in the community for our clients also without charge. The volunteers are well trained in theShanti model of compassionate presence and provide an environment of care and support unequaled in the Southern California area. I am a volunteer in the HIV/Aids community for 20 years. When Shanti closed its doors, Sunnie stepped up to the plate and has done much personally and professionally to have TLGLA survive to serve. Personally, I am a better woman, nurse and volunteer because of the work with TLGLA and the wonderful individuals who give abundantly to the clients who come to us for education and emotional support during a most challenging time. I have met families and partners of our clients who attend the POZ weekend and the transformation from "aloneness" to meeting a community of caring individuals at TLGLA is renewing and life affirming for me.
