One Heartland is a national non-profit organization that enhances the lives of children infected with and affected by HIV/AIDS through year-round support, advocacy, recreational programs and community AIDS awareness efforts. In the company of other children like themselves, they are permitted to forget the stigma of their condition. From singing around a campfire to swimming and other outdoor activities, One Heartland gives kids the chance to just be kids.
One Heartland works to dispel and overcome the discrimination of all people affected by HIV/AIDS by practicing unconditional acceptance and passing on that torch through a variety of awareness programs. SIA has partnered with One Heartland since 2003 by hosting various events and activities throughout the year. Specifically, chapters organize year-round fundraisers, host annual banquets, and promote HIV/AIDS awareness to benefit One Heartland.
