“Maitri saved my life not once but three times when I fell and needed help to get up again and survive.”

Barbara came to Maitri almost 10 years ago for the first time and was struggling for many of her prior years. She was diagnosed HIV positive. Her life & health changed drastically, and she needed support badly. “I had issues interfering with my health, and I needed support to get strong again,” says Barbara.

When Barbara was diagnosed with advanced AIDS, a Social Worker told her about Maitri. She said, “Maitri is like my family and a safe place, but it also provides medical stabilization for people like me who fall and need help getting up again. She said it was a place I could get the care I needed to get back on my feet three times and keep living. Maitri has been very supportive, and I am so happy to say I am now stronger.”

At Maitri, we are giving Barbara—who spent so many years on the streets—the compassionate care she so desperately needs and deserves. “The services at Maitri are first class, and I am truly grateful for all the love and compassion I have received since I have been here. I feel whole once again and excited to resume my life with a positive spirit and renewed health,” Barbara says today. Join us in giving others like Barbara, the homeless, underprivileged, and poor, who bravely face a life and death struggle with late-stage AIDS, and chronical illnesses, a second chance at a full and independent life. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today to support Maitri’s good work for both our hospice and medical respite residents. We are approaching our 31st year of service to the San Francisco community.

Maitri has faced increased demand for our services this year, making your gift all the more critical— and impactful. Thank you so much for your generosity and for remembering Maitri’s residents during the holidays.
