History

 

Joining Hearts was started in 1987 by a group of friends who saw a lack of housing needs for people living with HIV/AIDS in Atlanta.  They decided to throw a party to raise money for a friend who needed some help.  Those friends became the first host committee for the “main event” as the each donated a little money to fund the party.  All the proceeds from that event went to help their friend and Joining Hearts was born.
