The Silver Lining Project

The Silver Lining Project creates and maintains a virtual and physical safe space where Mature African American men living with HIV can share, discuss and advocate for issues impacting our community.  We host meetings to present information, engage in community outreach, and host social events designed to enhance the lives of our members. 


We exist to change the way the world view women that are surviving, thriving, and living well after being diagnosed with HIV.
