H.E.R.O. for Children remains the only organization in Georgia solely focused on Quality of Life care for children with HIV/AIDS

Ninety percent (90%) of the families served by H.E.R.O. for Children, Inc. struggle to make ends meet on a household income of $15,000 or less. They are often unable to afford school supplies, adequate clothing and other materials that are necessary for a child's academic success.

Each year, H.E.R.O. for Children hosts a Back-2-School Bash as a way for children affected by HIV and AIDs to celebrate the start of a new school year. During this event, the children receive backpacks full of school supplies.

Help a H.E.R.O. child start the school year equipped to succeed! This year's back-to-school event will take place on Saturday, July 29th, 2018.
