Currently volunteers are being recruited to assist with The fair is designed to offer a "one stop" experience for those seeking social services, health screenings and additional information on the mission of the group and its umbrella entity, The Living Affected Corporation. Jonathan Griggs said, " we are excited about this chance to bring to life our "HEFTE" concept which addresses housing, education, food, treatment and employment in relation to either linking or retaining individuals into HIV/AIDS care." "through our research we've determined that these social determinants must be apart of the health care mix if we are to adequately make some impact within the community," He concluded. The group's purpose serves as a sub-grantee of ADH as well as the conduit of the HIV Prevention module to serve same gender loving men having sex with men population. All services will be offered free including limited groceries, giveaways, and information tables ranging from Workforce Services to companies such as AFLAC and Philander Smith College.

The House of DeLevi Lands
Have I said that folks keep telling me that there's nothing for them to do in this city? Well, if that's
you then here's another news flash. The House of Delevi is schedule to land this Saturday 9 p.m
with launching its "Sultry Saturday Nights" concept via The Quarter Note lounge, 4726
Asher (formerly known as Club Hollywood). According to organizers the "house" had been besieged by local patrons to the "void" of a viable same gender loving venue where patrons could feel safe not to mention respected for the patronage. The House denizens were approached by club management for discussion on using the venue as a means to answer this need within the community infrastructure plus the opportunity would provide another viable platform to further disseminate possible holistic messaging around HIV/AIDS prevention. Scheduled for September 22 is the groups first show featuring area entertainers and headliners. This is a 21 and up affair, $8.00 before 11pm, the price jumps to $10 bucks afterwards. There's going to be house music, Hip-Hop and fashion but no hats, hoods or messiness will be the order of the day. Security ain't having it. COP 24/7 has had a pre-look and has been asked to be the mix in a variety of manners. Stay tuned because as this mothership takes root this forum will have the all the inside news of what's really going on. If you see us...holla! Get their early, this may be a standing room only step off.
