Looking For a Unique Way to Support the Partnership for Successful Living?
POSTED ON February 25th BY
Turn your unwanted items into cash for the Partnership! When the economy is tough, people often cut back on cash donations to their favorite charity. Now, there is a different way to help. Partnership for Successful Living has recently collaborated with Consigning for Good Consignment Shop to help us turn your donated items into resources for the Partnership. Consigning for Good, located at 172 South Street in Milford, NH, is a typical consignment shop – with a twist. Yes, you can consign your items, BUT you can also donate your pre-owned furniture, antiques, collectibles, jewelry, and home décor items such as lamps, pictures, and dishes, and have a portion of the proceeds go to any of the Partnership for Successful Living agencies. Instead of throwing away your furniture and household items, help the Partnership and the community!   “So many people want to help their favorite MORE >

Southern New Hampshire HIV/AIDS Task Force Learns About New Research
POSTED ON February 14th BY PartnershipTeam
Could taking medications for HIV/AIDS be a thing of the past? According to an article in The Huffington Post, Stanford Researchers have made a breakthrough in HIV/AIDS treatment. Doctors and researchers who have adopted HIV/AIDS study as their life work have created a HIV resistant T-cell in laboratories. This T-Cell was created in hopes that by inserting the T-cells into a patient who has HIV, the patient will then become immune to the disease and stop the virus before an individual develops AIDS. If this is true, it also means that HIV patients will no longer have to take lifelong medications to protect them from the deadly virus. This is great news to hear at the Southern New Hampshire HIV/AIDS Task Force. Through its clients, the Task Force experiences first hand what is like to struggle and live with the many side effects of drug treatments. MORE >
