ABOUT THE GRACE PROJECT CONFERENCE

The Grace Project 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.

Celebrating the conference’s 17th year, the event is designed to bring formerly isolated women living with HIV 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.
