HIV+/AIDS Women, Men, and Partners Support – Feathered Pipe Foundation Seva
For more than 25 years the Feathered Pipe Foundation has partnered with Montana organizations in offering free retreat and support for men, women & partners struggling with the disease.
These retreats are empowering and unifying events that enable the participants to experience support from their peers and receive information and education from health care professionals concerning treatment issues, sexual health, mental health, nutrition, self-esteem, body image, the impact of drugs and alcohol, and more.
Woman Power: Retreat for Positive Women
As part of our pro bono work, the Feathered Pipe Foundation has long supported the Lewis and Clark County AIDS Project‘s annual Women Power Retreat. This week-long healing retreat offers a chance for women from small communities to come together, share their stories and experiences, get support from their peers and receive information and education from health care professionals. This week has been a powerful influence on many – several women have themselves gone on to become activists for HIV positive women.
The mission of Woman Power is to provide a confidential and nurturing atmosphere in which HIV-positive women can share experiences from community, lay down burdens, and gain skills and information to better take charge of their lives.
