Celebrating the conference’s 15th year, the Grace Project is designed to bring formerly isolated HIV-positive women together. The goal of the conference is to SEE -- Support, Educate and Empower -- each woman and create future advocates for HIV prevention, health education and awareness. The 2014 Grace Project Conference features over 15 health speakers, a Texas Instruments Computer Lab, the Intuit Money Matters Room, the Afyia Center Letter writing room, and will have a variety of activities to promote advocacy for HIV+ women.

The conference has support from the HIV community of North Texas with practically every HIV organization partnering with the event. Individuals can sponsor the conference fee for one deserving HIV+ woman for only $50 and larger sponsorships are also welcome.

The Grace Project (www.legacygraceproject.org) was inspired by Grace Hunt, a loving and generous woman who counseled women with HIV/AIDS. The program seeks to encourage hope and hold families together through a supportive net of services including mental health counseling, substance abuse treatment, support building, and education as women are the fastest growing population of new HIV infections.  The conference is the centerpiece of the program.

Legacy Counseling Center (www.legacycares.org) was founded 25 years ago by a small group of psychotherapists and people living with HIV/AIDS who needed a place to go for support in dealing with this life changing disease. Legacy also operates Legacy Founders Cottage, a seven-bedroom house that provides around-the-clock care for critically ill and dying AIDS patients in a home-like setting.
