Charlotte H was founded in March 2005 by a small group of friends whose mission was to provide social and support activities for individuals with HSV1, HSV2, and HPV in Charlotte, North Carolina. However, we could have never imagined that the group would grow to over 1,300 members in just 2 years . . . So, we incorporated as a non-profit organization in 2007 so that we could better support our growing membership. As a real Charlotte community, Charlotte H has made an impact locally to dispel the social stigma attached to these viruses. Charlotte H members from all over the United States come here to find support, anonymity, fun, and friendship.
“We must not discriminate between things. Where things are concerned there are no class distinctions. We must pick out what is good for us where we can find it.” –Pablo Picasso
Any individual who has HSV1, HSV2, or HPV is welcomed to join this group. We realize that individuals in the group may form friendships or relationships and have falling outs or break-ups. However, the group, for the sake of its members, must remain impartial and supportive. We cannot alienate members due to personal differences or take sides due to popularity. Members within the group are expected to act maturely should conflicts arise so that all members can benefit from the support and friendship offered by the group.
“Respect is not fear and awe; it… [is] the ability to see a person as he is, to be aware of his unique individuality. Respect, thus, implies the absence of exploitation. I want the loved person to grow and unfold for his own sake, and in his own ways, and not for the purpose of serving me.” –Erich Fromm
This group is founded on respect for one another. Therefore, members are expected to lift one another up instead of tearing each other down. Members are encouraged to provide a safe environment for one another, removing threat of harm, ridicule, slander, harassment, or animosity between one another.
“Nothing is quite as bad as being without privacy and lonely at the same time.”–Alexander Theroux
Due to the nature of this group, members are encouraged to value one another’s privacy. Should another member not wish his or her H-status be disclosed outside of the group, it is his or her wish that shall be granted. Personal issues between members will be handled off-line in a discreet manner.
“Friendship is born at the moment when one person says to another “What! You too? I thought that no one but myself.”–C.S. Lewis
We have all had our ups and downs and but have at least ONE thing we know that binds us together. As a group of friends, we should work hard to love each other, forgive each other, and be there for each other. The goal is for no cry to go unheard, no solitude to go unbroken, and there be no circumstance where apathy replaces love.

All issues that escalate to this level will be handled confidentially and collectively by the HTeam board members.
